Bedtime Stories Fundraiser Events
Bedtime Stories is a yearly literary celebration in which Northwest writers unveil original short stories created for the event. Taking place in Seattle and Spokane each year in October, proceeds go toward Humanities Washington’s mission to create spaces to explore different perspectives.
The Bedtime Stories fundraiser has included prominent Northwest novelists like Charles Johnson, Tom Robbins, Jess Walter, Sharma Shields, Jamie Ford, David Guterson, August Wilson, and Garth Stein. The events also feature the presentation of the Humanities Washington Award.
