SAL Presents

Sherman Alexie Loves is SAL's newest three part series. SAL is excited to partner with novelist, poet, playwright and children's author Sherman Alexie for this series, which will feature evenings of conversation with authors that Alexie loves. 

Women You Need to Know is a three-part series that features and celebrates prodigious women authors, artists, and thinkers. The series was designed to provide younger readers of our community with an avenue of discovery for some of the most culturally relevant women of our time, as well as appealing to those who already attend our events. 

Local Voices presents an unique opportunity to eavesdrop into the works of SAL's Writers in the Schools resident writers as these local acclaimed novelists, poets, essayists and storytellers come together and read from their own works-in-progress.

SAL Presents' events include authors and prominent thinkers discussing their latest work, and other exciting literary surprises.  Among these events will be The Moth Mainstage returning to Benaroya Hall's S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium.
