Reading at Benaroya Hall

If you are in town, come on down! (And don't miss the Happy Hour at Hotel W following the reading.) Here is the scoop:

Seattle Arts & Lectures & Artist Trust are pleased to co-present readings by some of the state's most accomplished poets, essayists and novelists, who will share their work prior to Seattle Arts & Lectures Literary Lecture Series events in the S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium of Benaroya Hall. Readings are free of charge to all ticket holders. Non-ticket holders may attend these readings with a suggested $5 donation.

Monday, November 19, 2007 5:30 PM - Physician-poet Peter Pereira interweaves the worlds of the body, medicine, word play, and domestic gay life. A founding editor of Floating Bridge Press, his books include The Lost Twin, Saying the World, and What's Written on the Body. Susan Rich is a poet, traveler, and activist. Author of two books of poetry, including the recent volume Cures Include Travel, she has also worked as a staff person for Amnesty International, an electoral supervisor in Bosnia, and a human rights trainer in Gaza.

Happy Hour at the W: Adding to your evening's luster, the W is offering Seattle Arts & Lectures/Artist Trust attendees a relaxing interlude between pre-lecture readings and the lectures themselves. Join friends, pull up a chair near the fireplace, imbibe a specialty cocktail, and sample an appealing array of appetizers. The W is steps away from Benaroya Hall, located on the corner of 4th and University. This no-host Happy Hour will take place in the ground floor Living Room lobby of the hotel from 6:15 to 7:15pm. Identify yourself as a Seattle Arts & Lectures/Artist Trust patron and enjoy!
