Powered by grants, volunteers, and the written word, Lit Crawl Seattle will again fill Capitol Hill and nearby venues with authors, poets, bloggers, and, yes, even a journalist or two Thursday night.
October 19, 2017: You’re booked.
35+ events. 15+ venues. 1 awesome night.
Lit Crawl Seattle is a series of uncommon literary events — readings, performances, panel discussions, and beyond — that take place in pubs, museums, cafes, libraries, and a host of other spaces throughout the Capitol Hill and First Hill neighborhoods in Seattle.
The best part: most of the events are FREE.

2017 maps will be distributed to participating venues soon.
From the first crawl in 2012, the annual event continues to be marked by an eclectic mix of participants and venues from bars to co-working spaces to technical bookstores to a new eyeglasses store on E Pike. The Seattle Public Library also joins the party — this year, check out Booktoberfest: Library After Dark: Scary Stories in the Stacks at the Capitol Hill branch.
Lit Crawl receives funding from Shunpike and is a grant recipient of King County 4Culture and the City of Seattle Office of Arts and Culture.
With more than 15 venues, it’s a busy night. The Seattle Review of Books is helping out with a few suggested itineraries. Looking for the big crowd? Stop by Neumos sibling The Runaway for a session with Stranger reporters as they record a live edition of their podcast, Trust Issues:
Trust Issues is a podcast about facts gone wrong, hosted by Sydney Brownstone and Heidi Groover. Each week, we go down an online rabbit hole to discover a fake story, conspiracy theory, or alternate history of the galaxy and try to understand why so many people believe it’s true.
