Hugo House is a significant force in Seattle’s literary arts scene, home to a wellspring of creativity, from readings to workshops to youth outreach programs—“a place where you can read words, hear words, and make your own words better.” This annual fundraiser includes dinner by seasonal caterers Herban Feast, a live auction of unique items and experiences you probably want to bid on, and a talk by special guest author Laurie Frankel (This Is How It Always Is, Goodbye for Now). Proceeds help Hugo House in its efforts to bring all those fantastic authors to its stage and give scholarships and fellowships to emerging writers, because this isn’t a career that pays, people. The newbs need all the support they can get, and Hugo House does its part to offer it. You should, too. Go eat and be merry for a good cause.
