Join us in the historic Ella’s Theater to celebrate Evergreen, the latest anthology from Scablands Books. In this rich, shadowy, glittering anthology edited by Sharma Shields and Maya Jewell Zeller, 56 Northwest writers share their singular stories, essays, and poems that center what Shields calls "the literature of despair." This event will feature readings from contributors Beth Piatote, Taneum Bambrick, Inga Laurent, Emma Noyes, and Margot Kahn, whose work confronts what is difficult in life with extraordinary precision and grace. As Zeller writes in the book's introduction, this ambitious anthology pushes us to "learn, memorize, and recite the songs sung by these regional voices, mapping us into a communal root system of evergreen selves." Please join us to celebrate these talented writers and Spokane’s own Scablands Books.

In order to attend this event, you must purchase a Weekend Pass. One pass ($15 + fees) covers entry into ALL events on Saturday and Sunday at The Montvale Event Center. There will be metered parking or paid downtown lots. Make sure to join our mailing list for future festival announcements.
