Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 22nd — that's the date for Lit Crawl Seattle, the annual three-part literary pub crawl that happens all over downtown, Capitol Hill, and First Hill. Organizers at Lit Crawl just announced their full schedule and it's ridiculously packed with local talent. There are scores of readers — somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 — and dozens of readings to suit just about every literary taste.
A tiny handful of event titles include the self-explanatory "Native Writers from Seattle & Beyond;" "Quick & Dirty: A Reading by [awesome local publisher] Shotgun Wedding;" "Sin Is Always In: Writings About Sex, Drugs, & Violence;" and "Late Night at the Library: Spooky Stories in the Stacks." Organizations headlining events include Hedgebrook, the APRIL Festival, the James Franco Review, Poetry Northwest, Spartan, Tin House, Instant Future, and City Arts.
We'll be highlighting potential Lit Crawl routes for you in the weeks to come, but for right now, go soak in the glorious too-muchness that is the complete Lit Crawl schedule. You've got plenty of time to figure out what you'll be doing on the night of the 22nd.
