Award ceremony tomorrow night at the Seattle Public Library

Just a reminder, tomorrow night at 7 PM I’ll be accepting a Washington State Book Award at the central branch of the Seattle Public Library. Other award winners include Sherman Alexie, David R. Montgomery, Coll Thrush, Samuel Green, and George Shannon. Admission to the award ceremony is free.

Also, this Friday at 7:30 PM, I’ll be at Richard Hugo House, debuting a specially commissioned short story on the theme “Road Trip” for the Hugo House Literary Series. Aimee Bender, the poet Marie Howe, and singer Laurie Katherine Carlsson will be onstage with me presenting new works of their own. Tickets are $15-25.

Finally, on Saturday at 11 AM, I’ll be back at Hugo House for a live interview with The Stranger‘s Paul Constant.
