Peter Mountford and Patrick Somerville

Seattle Arts and Lectures Writer-in-Residence Peter Mountford will read from his debut novel, A Young Man's Guide to Late Capitalism.  At once urgent and timeless in its themes of choice, fate, history, love, and global politics, the novel has already received zillions of words of praise, as has Mountford for his previous short fiction. 

Local favorite Patrick Somerville will also be stopping by to share his latest, The Universe in Minature in Minature.  Spiraling together and then speeding out to explore unknown frontiers, Somerville's stories display a fierce curiousity and pleasure with the nether-regions of creativity - students making sense of the School of Surreal Art and Design without teachers or classes, an unhappy couple arguing on as the Earth's orbit halts, a recent inheritor dreaming of preventing the apocalypse. 

Basically this is not a night to miss!
