Seattle is a haven for literary arts—we’ve been an official UNESCO City of Literature since 2017—and during the annual one-night-only Seattle Lit Crawl, locals are invited to soak it all in during an extended night of booze and book loving. For the 2019 edition, more than 80 PNW readers and artists are scheduled to appear at Capitol Hill and First Hill bars, cafes, and businesses (including Hugo House, Capitol Cider, Vermillion, Capitol Hill Library, and Elliott Bay Book Company), in events that encompass straightforward readings and storytelling (with tales ranging from "oyster foraging to the Jesus movement, photography of Seattle outcasts and innocents, to odes to football and salt”), talks, cookbook-fueled demos (“Playing with Dough” sounds delicious), performances, and more. A new facet to the affair: five separate phases of programming to choose from in five different time slots. Plus, there’s the traditional night-ending after-party. All of this adds up to a whole lot of words read, spoken, and appreciated.
