The Bainbridge Island Historical Museum will hold its annual meeting Saturday, Feb. 9.

The gathering starts at 1 p.m. at St. Barnabas Church.

In addition to a brief business meeting, the museum looks forward to recognizing Olaf Ribeiro, Andrew Price, and Carol and Ron McCarthy as this year’s 2019 History Heroes.

Jason Colby will be a guest speaker at the event. He will talk about his recent book, “Orca: How We Came to Know and Love the Ocean’s Greatest Predator.”

Born in Victoria, British Columbia, but raised here on Bainbridge Island, Colby will draw on his personal and family history as he presents a slideshow and answers questions from attendees.

Colby, currently an associate professor of environmental and international history at the University of Victoria, will be available to sign copies of his book after speaking at the annual meeting.
