Jaimee Garbacik (editor, artist, and author of Gender & Sexuality for Beginners), Josh Powell, and illustrator Jon Horn have finally finished Ghosts of Seattle Past (Chin Music Press), a collaborative book featuring tons of art and stories based on the memories of Seattle mossbacks, transplants, and the dispossessed alike. You remember that punk house you used to go to in high school? Or that one coffee shop in the Melrose building? Or the 10,000 years of Duwamish life buried in the ground beneath the city? Those stories are all in there, as well as great comics by Eroyn Franklin and Jon Strongbow. This event is the first stop of a walking tour held in celebration of the book, which will eventually lead them to other cities whose local histories they'll explore. RICH SMITH
After the main reading, the crew will travel to the Jewelbox for an after-party featuring additional readings by book contributors Kibibi Monie, Elissa Washuta, Kate Lebo, and Kathy Fennessy, live music from Aaron Semer, and dessert.
