Get drunk . . . on words!

Think of Lit Crawl Seattle as a free cool reading at your favorite bar, times about 30. For one beautiful and awesomely weird night, over 80 Pacific Northwest readers and artists fill Capitol and First Hill bars with stories ranging from oyster foraging to the Jesus movement, photography of Seattle outcasts and innocents, to odes to football and salt.

In past years, we’ve hosted everyone from former National Book Award finalist Jess Walter to Lindy West. Throughout the years, we have hosted readings by VIDA, Tin House, critically-acclaimed artists such as Eileen Myles and Melissa Febos, and much more, at venues throughout the neighborhood—including Hugo House, Vermilion, Capitol Cider, Capitol Hill Library, and Elliott Bay Book Company.

In 2019, we’ll continue our tradition of 5 phases of programming: 5-5:45pm, 6-6:45pm, 7-7:45pm, 8-8:45pm, and 9-9:45pm, plus literary shenanigans at the after party at 10pm.

This year, you’ll get to take in 35+ readings and 80+ readers and performers on this year’s line up!
Save the date: Thursday, October 24th, 2019.

Three authors write about, among other things, the time they spend playing with dough. For veteran cookbook author and teacher Cynthia Lair, it’s about digging into the wonders and mysteries of sourdough. The lively and talented Linda Miller Nicholson creates rainbow-colored pasta that looks (almost) too good to eat. Finally, blogger and author Aran Goyoaga crafts beautiful indulgences that are gluten-free. Each will talk briefly about how they arrived at their specialty and share some samples from their books, as well as their words. Hosted by undoubtable Jeanne Sauvage.

Tickets are $5
