Rebecca Brown says the Sorrento Hotel is haunted by the ghost of Alice B. Toklas. Toklas was Gertrude Stein’s girlfriend, famously. She also apparently spent some time in Seattle. Whatever you believe about ghosts, I think we can all agree any ghost who’s got inside Gertrude gossip is a ghost worth trying to talk to. Tonight’s event, thrown by the very great APRIL Festival, involves several writers trying to commune with the ectoplasmic lesbian, including Rebecca Brown, Joshua Beckman, and Jan Wallace. Plus, live music!
