3 Feet Under: Digging Deep for the Geoduck Clam

A last minute addition to our Citywide Reads lineup of special events is a screening of the documentary 3 Feet Under: Digging Deep for the Geoduck Clam. Learn more about one of the sea creatures featured in The Highest Tide with the movie Entertainment Weekly calls, "A film for those who are fascinated by obscure cultural phenomena." Following the screening, producer and director Justin Bookey will discuss the film, whose subject is the world's largest burrowing clam. The Geoduck (pronounced gooey duck) Clam sports a neck three feet long, has a life span of 160-plus years, and is jokingly referred to as the Washington State Bird.


The film will screen at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 7 in the Main Library's MLK Jr. Auditorium and will be followed by a discussion with Justin.

One of the pleasures of The Highest Tide was the detailed but user friendly descriptions of so much of the tide pool life and its surroundings. And now a movie about one of its stars! Can't wait.

First the grunion are running, and now this. Looking forward to seeing what a geoduck is like in its natural environment and not on top of my sushi.

Just heard about this Geoduck Event at the discussion I went to on Monday. I'm so curious to learn more about these guys. Loved the discussion on Monday. It made me think a lot about how tuned in Miles was to the natural world and how in our busy sometimes disconnected lives we're missing so much of that good stuff around us!
