Hugo Literary Series: Joshua Ferris, Melissa Febos, E.J. Koh & Tomo Nakayama

Bestselling author Joshua Ferris, critically acclaimed writer Melissa Febos, Seattle-based poet E.J. Koh and singer/songwriter Tomo Nakayama will present brand-new work on the theme “Homecoming.”

The Hugo Literary Series presents new writing and songs from a theme, or writing prompt, commissioned by Hugo House. The 2017-2018 Hugo Literary Series coincides with our move to a new and permanent home on the same site where we first opened our doors over 20 years ago on the corner of 11th Avenue and E Olive. In this same spirit of development and growth, we’ve commissioned new work on themes of real estate—from the pragmatic issues of property value to the more nebulous idea of place.

The nights are collages of unexpected styles and different points of view, and the writers and musicians are encouraged to work without a sense of obligation, censorship, or stylistic frame. No one sees or hears the work before it is read or performed at the events for the very first time.

Books will be for sale from the Elliott Bay Book Company and Open Books: A Poem Emporium.

The Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State

Weekly feminist reading circle
The Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State
In this essential work of Marxist theory, Frederick Engels shows how society evolved from early cooperative matriarch-ies to the class-stratified, male-dominated system of today.
Discussions will examine why women’s second-class status persists – with problems such as sexual harassment, discrimination, and unequal pay – and how it can be overcome. Armed with this knowledge, the group will examine strategies for women’s liberation. Readers will gain the optimistic view that capitalist brutality is only one brief stage along humanity’s path forward.
Books will be available for sale at the sessions. Light snacks at 6:45pm. Everyone welcome.

1903 NE 82nd St., Seattle
North of the University District. Near the #73 bus.

Kids Parkour Spring Break Camp

Do you have a child who has a need to run, jump, and climb? Parkour is a physical activity for all ages and abilities, focusing on building strength unique to each individual body, and sharing empowering mindsets to each unique mind. Parkour provides a safe space for kids to be kids: climb trees, jump and run through obstacle courses, and play. All while being taught key values such as how to break down a seemingly impossible challenge into manageable progressions, and also how to avoid injury by creating body awareness when falling down!

We are offering a Spring Break Kids Camp for Parkour & Urban Exploring. Each day students will use parkour to explore one of Seattle’s coolest spots — Volunteer Park! We will not only run, jump, climb, swing, and crawl through the incredible trees but learn more about our world through learning navigation and map-making skills, visiting local cultural spots, an appreciation for nature through outdoor play, and cooperation through games.

Sign up at https://parkourvisions.org/2018-spring-break-camp/


Full Day Week April 9-13: 9AM – 3PM. Early Bird Price: $395

Half Day Week April 9-13: 9AM – 12PM. Early Bird Price: $270


We also offer parkour classes for kids and adults all over Seattle every day of the week! We keep our class sizes small to give high quality instruction & personalized attention to each student. Go to http://www.parkourvisions.org to see our full schedule.

Come out and level up with us! Parkour Visions is one of the oldest teaching organizations in the country providing parkour, freerunning, and movement classes for all ages and abilities every day of the week!  Our instructors will teach your child (and adults too!) how to climb, jump, crawl, and swing your way through your environment, indoors and out. We make sure to bring the fun, make things physically and mentally challenging, and ensure you are safe as you push yourself to level up.

Parkour Visions is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to sharing the benefits of parkour and natural movement with all ages through educational programming, design, and community development.  We believe that parkour is one of the most powerful pathways to long-lasting physical, emotional, and social health, and provides a path over many obstacles blocking people engaging in life-long fitness, including ease of access, knowledge, affordability, and need for encouragement.
