Have you ever wondered how lime is made from limestone?  Or gazed in wonder at the lime kilns scattered across our islands?  Why, for that matter, is our State Park called Lime Kiln?  Local architectural historian Boyd C. Pratt’s new book Lime: Quarrying and Limemaking in the San Juan Islands tells all.  Boyd will review the history and technology of limemaking in the San Juan Islands.  Refreshments!  Free!  (Except, of course, for the book, which is $9.95, cash or check only, please.)
