Our current sponsor

If you haven't purchased tickets yet for one or both of the November events hosted by Northwest Associated Arts, move fast. Seats for both Neil Gaiman and David Sedaris are more than 50% gone, and it's still only September.

Neil Gaiman, one of the most beloved writers of our time, takes the stage on November 18 to tell stories, answer questions, and in his own words: “amaze, befuddle and generally delight." No one can delight like Neil Gaiman; we don't need to know more.

David Sedaris is returning to Seattle for his annual reading and signing on November 19, with the publication of the much-lauded Calypso still fresh. He'll be sharing both published stories and works-in-progress. If you haven't heard Sedaris read, grab this opportunity — it'll change how you hear his words on the page permanently, and for the better.

Both events are hosted by this week's (and returning) sponsor, Northwest Associated Arts. We're immensely grateful for their ongoing support and for their work to bring great events like these to readers in Seattle.
