About Seattle Reads
The Washington Center for the Book at The Seattle Public Library invites everyone to take part in Seattle Reads, a project designed to deepen engagement in literature through reading and discussion.
Each year the Washington Center for the Book hosts an author for a series of free programs. Everyone is invited to join in Seattle Reads by reading the featured book, joining in a book discussion, and attending the programs.
A program guide with schedule of events and toolkit designed to enhance a book group's discussion of the author's work is available at all Seattle Public Library locations, as well as at many local bookstores. It is free to book discussion groups and readers throughout the area. It can also be downloaded from the Library's website: www.spl.org.
The Library lends hundreds of copies of the featured book to book groups prior to the author's visit. Books are also available through the Library catalog.
