Cookout with the Seattle 7

Sunday, July 29, 2018 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

The remarkable Seattle7Writers are coming to Island Books! They are a nonprofit collective of Pacific Northwest authors whose mission is to support literacy and the literary arts in the community, and to create connections between writers, readers, independent booksellers, and libraries.  Garth Stein will be on hand as our grill master with other S7W members serving up drinks and other sides. The first 50 customers to shop in the store that day will receive a Seattle7Writers tote, and you can also enter our raffle for a bag of signed books by the Seattle7. 

Stop by for a hot dog, meet authors, and pick up summer reads! We'd love to have a rough idea of how many mouths we'll have to feed, so please RSVP on our Facebook page if you're interested in attending.

Attending authors include:

  • Garth Stein
  • Jim Lynch
  • Bridget Foley
  • Dori Butler
  • Robert Dugoni
  • J. Anderson Coates
  • Clare Meeker

During the event, 20% of all book sales will benefit Team Read, a nonprofit organization that pairs struggling young readers with trained teen reading coaches for one-on-one tutoring after school and during the summer.
