Seattle: City of Literature


Town Hall (map) First Hill
Wed., March 12, 7:30 p.m. 2014

Nate Watters

For months now, I've been telling you about novelist Ryan Boudinot and his bid to have Seattle recognized as a UNESCO City of Literature. Tonight, with an array of Seattle-area speakers, Boudinot will explain the contents of our submission to UNESCO and explain what the future holds for Seattle. This is important stuff, because if Seattle wins this bid, we will be a part of a broader community of international creative people, and the city will gain the attention it deserves as an international hub of literature. Speakers tonight include Chris Higashi of the Washington Center for the Book, memoirist Elissa Washuta, publisher Gary Luke, Elliott Bay Book Company events coordinator Rick Simonson, Hugo House Executive Director Tree Swenson, and the needs-no-introduction Nancy Pearl. The event will be emceed by Brian McGuigan.
