How Many Authors Can Fit in a West Seattle Festival?

One of the many things I love about the Pacific Northwest is the abundance of gifted writers who also call it home. Is it the long, gray winters with months of fog and drizzle that draw writers here? Or perhaps the isolation afforded by the abundance of island and wilderness living? Who knows, but for whatever the reason, the area is full of writers. Last month I was invited to a meet-and-greet of West Seattle authors, all living within a radius of a few miles. What fun!

Alice Kuder, Dora-Faye Hendricks, and others have pulled together this diverse group. They've organized an authors' booth for the Morgan Community Festival for a day of readings and Q&A, of meeting readers and other writers, of talking stories and sharing books. Merryweather Books will be on site with books available for purchase.
If you're in the Seattle area, venture across the bridge and join us. There will be continuous 15-minute author appearances throughout the day. I'll be reading at 1:30 and again at 2:30. I hope to see you there!
Meet the Authors!
