My Bookstore Lit Crawl!

To celebrate the November 13th publication of My Bookstore: Writers Celebrate Their Favorite Places to Browse, Read, and Shop, we are teaming up with local indie bookstores to host a lit crawl! 

 

We will be welcoming Stephanie Kallos, who wrote a lovely and sweet essay about our store  and members of the Seattle 7 group in a lively conversation about why indie's matter!  We are pleased to welcome Jennie Shortridge, Erica Bauermeister, Laurie Frankel, Dave Boling, Kevin O'Brien and Karl Marlantes.
