A livestream of this event will also be available. Town Hall events run approximately 75 minutes.

Town Hall is proud to partner with The Bushwick Book Club Seattle presenting concerts of original music inspired by literature. Each event showcases a lineup of local, professional musicians and artists each offering a fresh response to that evening’s source text, plus extras like an audience quiz, short film, or scholarly introduction. Book choices range from whimsical to solemn, classic to contemporary, and most every place in between.

To cap off her storied term as Washington’s sixth State Poet Laureate, Lummi tribal member Rena Priest gathered poems from more than 150 Washington poets — ranging from first graders to tribal elders — to celebrate the Northwest’s signature swimmers in this singular anthology.

“At long last salmon — the soul of the Pacific Northwest—have been given words to match the ongoing miracle of their existence.” – Timothy Egan, author of The Good Rain

Check it out at Seattle Public Library. Please consider buying your Bushwick choices with their local bookstore partner, Third Place Books.

Heads up: Reading this collection may cause you to buy fishing gear, get a boat, and never leave the Northwest.
