Seattle Public Libraries‘ librarians are wizards. These public servants outpace algorithms and understand the contours of research. My librarians have unlocked family secretes in the Genealogy Library and Seattle Room at the Central Branch downtown, sending me on a fascinating adventure down the research rabbit hole of roots and religion. I will present some of these findings, along with maps, old photos, new cartoons, and songs, at Lit Crawl this Thursday, October 22, 7:00 PM at Frye Art Museum, 704 Terry Ave, Seattle.
Here’s a map of the whole big Lit Crawl. I wish I could be in several places at once for this event – but I’ll be starting out at the Frye at 6:00 for Native Writers from Seattle and Beyond, then stick with myself at 7:00, and sprint over to Sole Repair at 8:00 to catch Poetry Northwest’s reading. #whatsyourcrawl
