Every summer, we partner with The Seattle Public Library to create a Summer Book Bingo card as part of our free summer reading program. Adults and kids play along from May – September to be entered in a chance to win fabulous prizes.
Mark your calendars! SAL will announce our brand new season of literary delights on Tuesday, June 13, at 10 a.m. Be the first to know which authors will visit the SAL stage in 2023/24 and secure your seat!
All subscriptions, including Create Your Own Series, will be on sale.
Join SAL for the release of LOVELIKE, a debut collection of poetry by the 2022/23 Seattle Youth Poet Laureate, Sah Pham! Published by Poetry NW Editions, LOVELIKE is the eighth in SAL’s series of Seattle Youth Poet Laureate books.
Sah will read from her new book alongside three 2022/23 Youth Poetry Fellows at Third Place Books Seward Park. At the reading, there will be a ceremonial passing of the laurel to Mateo Acuña, who is the incoming 2023/24 Seattle Youth Poet Laureate. We will also welcome and celebrate the nine other 2023/24 fellows. This event is free and open to the public.
We believe that reading, writing, and creative thinking are indispensable to a curious, engaged, democratic society. Our goal is to make these experiences available to as many people as possible, regardless of economic circumstances—which is why we created our Community Access Tickets (CAT) program for our in-person and digital events.
