Twenty-five local authors will sign their books, provide home-made treats and give readings to raise money for the PNA and the Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas, which provides free tutoring and writing help for students.

The event will begin with a short set by The Rejections, Seattle7Writers’ house band. Phinney Books will be selling authors’ books.
