Bedtime Stories

An annual literary celebration featuring critically acclaimed Northwest writers debuting original short stories created specifically for the dinner gala.

Literary Gala Raises Funds for Humanities Washington’s Work

Since 1999, Humanities Washington has hosted Bedtime Stories, a literary celebration featuring critically acclaimed Northwest writers unveiling original short stories created specifically for a dinner gala. The annual event raises funds for Humanities Washington’s work of sparking conversation and critical thinking across the state.

National Book Award winner Charles Johnson has called Bedtime Stories “the region’s premier literary event.”

The list of authors who have participated in Bedtime Stories reads like a who’s who of the Northwest literary scene, ranging from novelists like Charles Johnson, Jess Walter, Tom Robbins, David Guterson and Garth Stein, to poet laureates Sam Green and Kathleen Flenniken. For a roundup of the last several years’ events, visit the Past Events page.
