Humanities Washington’s evening of food, wine and words was a huge success in Spokane on Sept. 20. Now the fundraiser comes to Seattle, as authors read original works for our audience. If you’re not in Seattle, we have a slew of Speakers Bureau presentations and grant-funded events coming up – and there’s likely one in your area.
