WORDS MATTER BENEFIT GALA & AUCTION at Four Seasons Hotel
Presented by SEATTLE ARTS & LECTURES.
Our friends at Seattle Arts & Lectures present this annual evening devoted to raising funds for their good work - both the literary programming that offers poets and other writers and thinkers, and also SAL’s esteemed Writers in the Schools program. Also part of the evening will be the presentation of the Fourth Annual Sherry Prowda Literary Champion Award. This year’s award, following earlier recipients Leroy Soper, Book-It Repertory Theater, Third Place Books, and Chris Higashi, goes to both Open Books: A Poetry Emporium, and Elliott Bay’s own Karen Maeda Allman.
