Here are details from the CHS Calendar:
Lit Crawl Seattle is literary mayhem at its finest: an entire evening of free readings by some of the Seattle area’s most groundbreaking and beloved writers in bars and cafés, bookstores and art galleries, performance spaces and dance halls.
On Thursday, October 24, Seattle lit lovers will Crawl in three hour-long shifts beginning at 6 p.m., progressing toward an afterparty at Richard Hugo House.
Last year’s Seattle Lit Crawl featured more than 60 writers, actors, dancers, and musicians in 15 different venues across Capitol Hill. The 2013 event promises to be just as exciting, with fiction, memoir, poetry, art, and more from the likes of Ivan Doig, Nicole Hardy, Will Self, Kathleen Flinn, Sean Beaudoin, Ellen Forney, and many, many others.
