Everybody in Seattle is freaking out about the promised weekend wind storm that has whipped Cliff Mass into one of his rare meteorological lathers. Seattle Review of Books readers should know that two scheduled readings with local authors this weekend have been postponed due to weather:

  • Priscilla Long’s scheduled Elliott Bay Book Company event celebrating the launch of her two new books, Fire and Stone: Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? and Minding the Muse: a Handbook for Painters, Composers, Writers and Other Creators, has been moved to Thursday, November 10th at 7 pm.

  • Jeannine Hall Gailey’s Open Books signing for her new poetry collection Field Guide to the End of the Worldread my review here — is now scheduled for Sunday October 29th from 4 to 6 pm.

Tomorrow’s storm looks like it’s going to be a big one, folks. Stay inside, stay warm, stay safe, buy some candles and junk food, and settle in under a comforter with a big stack of books, okay? We’re giving you permission.
