July 8th, 2013 · Comments

Seattle7Writers and Elliott Bay Book Company are hosting another gathering of prominent Seattle authors at a Book Club Brunch to benefit literacy programs.

The Sunday, July 14, brunch will benefit Greenwood’s 826 Seattle, a non-profit writing and tutoring program. The ticket price of $50 includes brunch, mimosas, and a $20 tax-deductible donation.

The brunch is at 10 am. at Greenwood Square, on the southeast corner of North 85th Street and Greenwood Avenue North (above Hummus Café – enter on 85th next to the bus stop).

Author Garch Stein will emcee and Whidbey Island mystery writer Elizabeth George will discuss her books and the writing life.

Other authors that will sign books at the brunch:

  • Deb Caletti, “He’s Gone”
  • Tara Conklin, “The House Girl”
  • Laurie Frankel, “Goodbye For Now”
  • Kristin Hannah, “Fly Away”
  • Shannon Polson, “North of Hope”
  • Jennie Shortridge, “Love Water Memory”

Seattle7Writers is a nonprofit organization that presents local literature to the community while raising money for 826 Seattle. Authors’ books will be available for purchase; a percentage of book sales also will benefit literacy programs.
