Spotlight on Local Writers and Artists

See in person the innovative writers and artists showcased in our October literary issue. Authors Stacey Levine, Brian McGuigan, Richard Farr and Matthew Simmons will be joined by our our Spotlight Award Winners (filmmaker Lynn Shelton, sculptor Diem Chau, cellist Paul Rucker, performance artist Lucia Neare, and choreographer Zoe Scofield). The theme of the evening is "debate," so writers and artists will face off with presidential flair! (Better yet, they'll give us their artistic take on debate.) Arts & Culture editor Brangien Davis will moderate, Paul Rucker will provide musical interludes, and audience members will have their own chance to participate in a spirited debate.

Tuesday, Oct. 7, 7 p.m. Free. Richard Hugo House, 1634 11th Ave., Capitol Hill.
