Lesley Hazleton
Town Hall’s first scholar in residence returns to her old stomping ground, as Lesley Hazelton discusses her new book Agnostic: A Spirited Manifesto. Stepping away from the Middle Eastern focus of her past few books, the self-proclaimed accidental theologist’s latest tome offers heady romp through the mind of an intellectual adventurer who relishes curiosity and questioning over the dubious comforts of dogma and certainty. (Hey – Read our interview with her!) Town Hall, $5

Celebrating the Life of Ernestine Anderson
Seattle lost a vital voice of the city's jazz history when singer Ernestine Anderson died last month at the age of 87. Anderson's career spanned six decades as she traveled the world singing both on her own and alongside legends like B.B. King and Johnny Otis, becoming a favorite of luminaries like her peer Quincy Jones in the process. To honor her legacy, Seattle Theatre Group hosts a free public celebration at the Paramount Theater that will feature remembrances and performances by the Garfield High School Jazz Band and special guests. Paramount Theatre, Free (with RSVP)

Apr 9–Oct 9
Mood Indigo
With a rainbow of possibilities, we rarely dwell on the impact of a single color. Drawing largely from Seattle Art Museum’s collection, Mood Indigo: Textiles from Around the World at Asian Art Museum presents the many feelings the color blue can evoke when dyed on cloth. Ancient Egyptian fragments, Japanese kimonos, Belgian tapestries, Chinese robes, and contemporary multimedia works coalesce to both celebrate and investigate the power of color. Asian Art Museum, $9
