Santoro’s Books is creating a “boutique bookstore” inside the Phinney Neighborhood Center on Saturday, featuring 20 Northwest authors in person ready to talk to you about their books and sign your purchased copies.
The Seattle7Writers Holiday Book Signing event is from 3-6 p.m. Saturday in the blue building at the PNA, 6532 Phinney Ave. N., with cookies and author readings.
Authors at the event include: Garth Stein, Stephanie Kallos, Jim Lynch, Erica Bauermeister, Erik Larson, Carol Cassella, Kevin O’Brien, Jennie Shortridge, Elizabeth George, Randy Sue Coburn, Dave Boling, Thea Cooper, Laurie Frankel, Kit Bakke, Maria Dahvana Headley, Bob Dugoni, Sean Beaudoin, Kathleen Alcala, Suzanne Selfors and Susan Wiggs.
The Seattle7Writers is a group of 30 authors who encourage and promote Northwest literacy and literature with the rallying cry of “Read Local.” At Seattle7Writers events, readers can discover new favorites or keep abreast of what their favorite authors are currently doing, while supporting local literacy programs such as Writers In The Schools and pocket libraries in unconventional places. With camaraderie and enthusiasm, Seattle7Writers encourages you to support your local writer, writing programs and independent bookstores.
