Joining the chorus of Literary Voices


I'm delighted to have been asked to participate in this year's Literary Voices fundraiser for the UW Libraries. The keynote speaker is author and New York Times columnist Tim Egan (who also wrote the intro for Pugetopolis). The event features a group of other Northwest writers dining with guests at "literary roundtables," including me, Paul Bannick, Nicolette Bromberg, Ellen Dissanayake, Curtis Ebbesmeyer, Karen Fisher, Lyanda Lynn Haupt, Lesley Hazlelton, Jim Lynch, Heather McHugh, Doug Nufer, Art Thiel, Col Thrush, Sasha Su-Ling Welland, and David B. Williams. The date is: Saturday, April 24 at the UW Faculty Club (a fabulous NW mid-century gem). The time is: 6pm. And the donation is $100. Hope you can make it and support the UW, writers, and the importance of books. Plus, you'll hear a great talk from National Book Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Tim Egan, whose latest book, The Big Burn, is gripping and insightful, a disaster story with an important legacy and lessons for today. Hope to see you.
