Folio’s Summer Events Zooming On

Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum is a nonprofit library located in the Pike Place Market. Folio offers literary talks, a circulating book collection of donated books from Northwest collectors, and workspaces for writers.

Their numerous public programs include author readings, civic discussions, and musical evenings. These currently are being presented virtually. Folio librarian Lillian Dabney will continue to conduct author interviews this summer. Before that, check the upcoming May 27 event with two award-winning Seattle writers. Author David Laskin will be interviewed with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Mary Ann Gwinn about his new novel What Sammy Knew.

Folio plans to reopen their library for members on Tuesday, June 01. The library will be open by appointment, 12 pm to 6 pm, on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
