Tacoma’s Garfield Book Company and King’s Books have joined the Seattle 7 Writers as sponsors of the Tacoma Art Museum‘s literacy month series, “Inspired by the Northwest.” Members and friends of the Seattle 7 Writers collective are appearing at the museum on Sundays throughout the month of March to talk about how the Northwest has influenced their work. Booksignings follow all events.
Jennie Shortridge and Erica Bauermeister kicked things off the first Sunday. Stephanie Kallos and Jim Lynch will be featured on March 13; Carol Cassella and Randy Sue Coburn will talk on the 20th; and Mark Lindquist and Garth Stein will talk on the 27th. All proceeds support local literacy programs and Tacoma Art Museum’s public programming. Pre-registration is recommended. Go here for tickets.
