October is a Literary Month: Poetry and Prose in Seattle and Across the Bridge
Doing public readings is both invigorating and terrifying. It is a chance to be part of the literary community and to feel firsthand that words matter. Here are some events that I am reading at or attending over the next two weeks. If you are in driving distance of Seattle, why not come out?
Tonight, @ 7 pm Christine Deaval at the Good Shepherd Center in Wallingford, reads from Woodnote.
This year Northwest Bookfest returns to the Puget Sound area. 2 pm, Sunday, Oct. 2nd "Northwest Women's Voices" with Kelli Russell Agodon, Elizabeth Austen, Jeanine Gailey and Susan Rich.
7 pm, Tuesday, October 4th Best Women's Travel Writing at Wide World of Books and Travel with editor Lavinia Spalding, and contributors Jocelyn Edelstein, Sarah Bathum and Susan Rich.
5 pm, Wednesday, October 12th January O'Neil at Elliott Bay Book Company. I'll be on hand, too.
Hope to see you here or there.
