This will be the last APRIL Festival ever! For the last five years, these folks have curated a boozy, weeklong celebration of independent literature that connected Pacific Northwest readers to authors all around the nation. Now the organizers are moving on with their lives. Good for them! Don't like it? Start something yourself! In the meantime, block off your Saturday and enjoy this final one-day-only flurry of readings. In a gesture of looking back and looking forward, APRIL presents authors who have performed at the festival before with authors who haven't. Listen to vets such as Sarah Galvin, Elissa Washuta, and the Vis-à-Vis Society read alongside newbies such as Chelsea Werner-Jatzke, Jayinee Basu, and Tommy Pico. Buy cool indie books at the book expo in the afternoon; get drunk and eat and listen to great readings all evening; root for the playwright, the poet, the novelist, or the drag queen at night; and cry it all out at the closing party. Go say good-bye. RICH SMITH
