Jason Heller - Strange Stars

June 12, 2018 - 7:00pm

Ravenna

As the 1960s drew to a close, and mankind trained its telescopes on other worlds, old conventions gave way to a new kind of hedonistic freedom that celebrated sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. Derided as nerdy or dismissed as fluff, science fiction rarely gets credit for its catalyzing effect on this revolution. In Strange Stars, Jason Heller recasts sci-fi and pop music as parallel cultural forces that depended on one another to expand the horizons of books, music, and out-of-this-world imagery.

Come celebrate Seattle’s innovative community-created Somali alphabet book, "Baro Af-Soomaali” and meet the families who crafted it! The book, which was written during the summer of 2017, grew out of the realization that Somali language board books simply weren’t available in Seattle’s schools or libraries. This book was published by Applewood Books and is distributed by Ingram nationally and internationally and highlights Somali community, culture and language. Books will be available for purchase and signing by the authors.
