At Hugo House—Lapis Theater

SAL’s Writers in the Schools resident writers represent all ends of Seattle’s creative community. On these unique nights, acclaimed local novelists, poets, essayists, comics writes, and storytellers come together to mirror the creative process they inspire in their students as they read from their own, original new works.

Featured this evening will be Margot Case, Vicky Edmonds, Katy Ellis, Karen Finneyfrock, Kathleen Flenniken, Matt Gano, Rachel Kessler, Corinne Manning, Michael Overa and Ann Teplick.

This event is free and will be held at the Richard Hugo House from 7:30 pm to 9 pm.
