For Today

Lit Crawl Seattle 2014

Those thirsty for beer and also the written word should hop on the Lit Crawl train during its all evening procession. Prose and poetry, fiction and essay, local writers will be reading at over 20 locations, starting at Town Hall and ending with a big after party at the Richard Hugo House.

Participants include local heroes such as 2013 Stranger Genius Award Winner Maged Zaher, novelist Peter Mountford, and poet Rebecca Brown. Some personal favorites to look out for: The quiet genius of poet Jane Wong, Spike Friedman's theatrical comic styling, and Elissa Washuta, author of My Body is a Book of Rules.

Behind the Table: Meet the Artisans of Pike Place Market

The north end of Pike's Place Market is where you'll find the artistans—the tables where many locals bring their out-of-town parents, but otherwise breeze through en route to a quick bite at Piroshky Piroshky.

The Pike Place Producers and the Pike Place Market Foundation want you to come celebrate the Market artists this month at Behind the Table, where you can bid on special hand-crafted items and enjoy all sorts of food from some of the Market's favorite vendors, including Le Panier, Pear Delicatessen and Pike Place Fish.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Market Community Safety Net, provider of emergency assistance to Market residents.

Behind the Table: Meet the Artisans of Pike Place Market, Fri, Oct 24, 6pm–10, Market Atrium, 85 Pike St, $40

Communiversities: Examining Mission and Access

Back when community colleges were more commonly known as "junior colleges," the assumption was that they were made exclusively for high school dropouts and bored, empty nest housewives. That connotation is becoming less relevant every day.

Come join a panel discussion about the changing landscape of community colleges, and their continued growth as a viable alternative to traditional four-year universities.

Panelists include Jean Floten, First Chancellor of Western Governors University, and Denise Yochum, President at Pierce College Fort Steilacoom.

Communiversities: Examining Mission and Access, Thu, Oct 30, 6pm–8, Northeastern University-Seattle, 401 Terry Ave N, Free
