If you’re still bemoaning the demise of Northwest Bookfest (the last one was in 2003!), you’ll be thrilled to hear about the new Seattle Book Fest. The event—a grassroots effort by the Columbia City community—will showcase more than 60 exhibitors and 50 authors, including local writers Garth Stein, Mary Guterson, Jennie Shortridge and Nancy Pearl. Word nerds, rejoice! 

10/24 - 10/25. Times vary. Free; $5 suggested donation. Columbia City Events Center, 3528 S Ferdinand St.;
