Bushwick Book Club: Seattle7Writers
Bushwick Book Club presents an evening of music inspired by Seattle7Writers.
This annual collaboration with Seattle7Writers features 3 Seattle7Writers, each partnered with 3 musicians. That’s three authors and nine musicians! All twelve of them will be at the event to share their thoughts on the evening with the audience. It’s a unique look into what a “book talk” can be, and how musicians can connect with an author and with an audience.
The featured writers will be Anca Szilagyi (Daughters of the Air), Michael Schmeltzer (Blood Song), and Laurie Frankel (This Is How It Always Is).
In eight previous seasons, The Bushwick Book Club Seattle has hosted over 300 individual performers writing and debuting original music inspired by literature. “New and innovative work that surprises and delights,” is how one local author describes the Bushwick experience, while another librarian calls it “a brilliant way to expand anyone’s appreciation of words.” The Bushwick Book Club Seattle and STYLE: Songwriting Through Youth Literature Education are the twin arms of Bushwick Northwest, a federal 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization.
