As we enter August it truly seems like summer is upon us. The sun is (was) out, jackets have been relegated to closets (but are still easily accessible), and reading indoors with the rain dribbling down our windows is now only a memory (we should’ve sent this out yesterday)–for a few weeks at least. Make sure to come down to the bookstore to pick up that perfect summer read, and while you’re here stop by our reading room to catch your favorite wordsmith on their summer tour, or listen to a new author inspire you with tales that will accompany you into the summer and fall.
Join us in the bookstore on August 2nd as Robert Lopez and Joseph Salvatore (both teachers at New York’s The New School) read from their short story collections Asunder (available now) and To Assume a Pleasing Shape (out November 15th); Seattle food blogger Keren Brown celebrates the release of her book Food Lovers’ Guide to Seattle on the 13th; a day later on the 14th, Tony Award-winning playwright David Henry Hwang discusses his latest works in an onstage interview; Seattle author Doug Nufer reads from his latest novel By Kelman Out of Pessoa with saxophonist Wally Shoup on the 26th; on the 28th, 3-Day Novel Contest winner Jennifer K. Chung celebrates the release of her winning novel Terroryaki; and Seattle debut novelist Isaac Marion reads from his zombie coming-of-age tale Warm Bodies on the 29th.
We look forward to seeing you!
