Town Hall is proud to partner with The Bushwick Book Club Seattle for its twelfth mainstage season 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.

This event will feature original music and art inspired by Brit Bennett’s The Vanishing Half.

When twins Stella and Desiree run away from Mallard, Louisiana—a secluded town of light-skinned Black families—they discover that building a future means confronting the past, no matter how well they hide their secrets.

“An eloquent new entry to literature on that most vital of subjects, identity, The Vanishing Half is the novel of the year.” –TIME

Performance lineup announced approximately 30 days before the event. More info at TheBushwickBookClubSeattle.com


Presented by Town Hall Seattle and Bushwick Book Club Seattle.
