Seattle Public Library Events

So many great events at Seattle Public Library. [All free!]
Highlights for the next couple of months include:

Wednesday, January 26, 2022, 6 – 7 p.m. Online. Washington State Book Awards: Clyde W. Ford discusses "Think Black"  

Clyde W. Ford, winner of the 2021 Washington State Book Award for Creative Nonfiction, discusses "Think Black" in this Washington Center for the Book event. Registration required.

"Think Black" is "an engrossing story of how racist experiences of a Black father and son working at IBM had roots in a corporate mentality that lent support to the Nazism, Eugenics, and Apartheid." ~Jeffrey Stewart, Pulitzer Prize winning author of "The New Negro: The Life of Alain Locke"

Ford will read from and discuss "Think Black," and take questions from the audience.

This event is presented by the Washington Center for the Book (a partnership of The Seattle Public Library and the Washington State Library) and the Washington Library Association. The event is free and will be presented on Zoom. Registration is required to receive the event link. The event will be recorded and can be accessed on SPL's YouTube channel.


There is also an SPL YouTube Channel! So many free events to watch whenever you choose.
