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.
Lit Crawl Details :
At your first event, you will receive a special My Bookstore passport, and then at each event thereafter will
receive a stamp. With three or more stamps, you are entered for
