For the Literati

Seattle is a town of readers. Bookstores run rampant, as do all kinds of book events, from book fairs, to reading groups, to author readings, to literary lecture series. And because they are so well attended, great folks grace Seattle's literati scene. Often times these events are either free, or very inexpensive. Here are a few good sources

The Seattle Public Library has an ongoing schedule of events. Many are free. Here is my pick of the week:

Isabel Allende

Thursday, November 30 , 7:30 PM
From the SPL website: "Isabel Allende returns to Seattle to read from her new novel, Ines of My Soul. Allende is the celebrated author of such international bestsellers as The House of the Spirits, Eva Luna, and Paula. Her works were featured in the Library’s 2004 series, Seattle Reads Isabel Allende. Presented with Elliott Bay Book Company."

Free, no tickets required. Visit or call 206/386-4636 for more information.

Other ongoing sources for literary events include:

University of Washington Bookstore

Elliott Bay Book Company
