Hello, Urbanist friends. In the wake of my book being nominated for the Washington State Book Award, I’m having another book talk at the Greenwood Senior Center, on the afternoon of Thursday the 29th. Why there, you ask? 

Because they’re a swell bunch. They allowed me to rent their rooms for my film rehearsals when the rest of the town wanted an arm and a leg. I also worked on another film project that was made there (read this friendly newspaper article for more!). And because it’s free to attend! 

And, you don’t even have to be a senior! If you are in fact of the generation that covers its mouth when it yawns (well, that would be anyone over 40, and a tradition I’m keeping alive myself), there’s no reason not to stop by; but youngsters will feel right at home too. I’ll be there, after all, and I look 12…

I also said yes to this venue because it’s north of the ship canal, and my North End friends have too often made the shlep down to Georgetown or the Hill or Pioneer Square, and wouldn’t it be nice to cut them a break? If you live up there and have missed some of my previous events, I don’t blame you. Stop by this one if you like– I’ll be reading from my book, answering your questions, and chatting onstage with my friend and co-creator Tom Eykemans, the Seattle-based graphic artist who designed the book.

Time: Thursday, 8/29, 12:30-2:00pm.

Greenwood Senior Center
525 N 85th St.
