Co-sponsored by Folio, Ewing and Clark, and Historic Seattle

Panelists are: Eugenia Woo of Historic Seattle, Cynthia Brothers, founder of Vanishing Seattle, and Sam Farrazaino, developer of artist spaces and founder of Equinox Studios.

Folio Voices: Lisa Herbold and Matthew Richter on Saving Cultural Spaces
Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum, Thursday, October 25 at 5:30pm
How to keep places like the Showbox in our arts inventory.

Folio continues its new Happy Hour Conversations with two leading figures in the preservation of cultural spaces.

​District 1 City Councilmember Lisa Herbold represents West Seattle and South Park. She believes historic preservation is an important bridge to the city’s cultural roots in an ever-changing city. Herbold chairs issues related to the Arts as well as Economic Development on the Council and is an advocate for measures to preserve Legacy Businesses through incentives.

​Matthew Richter, who founded the art space Consolidated Works, and other art groups, helps developers find arts groups and vice versa, serving as the City's Cultural Space Liaison. (Richter was matchmaker for Folio's first space in the downtown YMCA.) David Brewster will moderate the discussion. (FolioSeattle)

Folio Authors: 1,000 BOOKS TO READ BEFORE YOU DIE: Jim Mustich in conversation with Mary Ann Gwinn Co-presented with Elliott Bay Books
Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum, Monday, October 29 at 7pm
Join Mary Ann Gwinn in conversation with James Mustich as they discuss 1,000 BOOKS TO READ BEFORE YOU DIE. This compulsively readable literary guide is as entertaining, surprising, and enlightening as the thousand books it recommends, and it celebrates something every reader loves—the joy of discovery.

Providing over 900 pages of notable books, including classic novels, beloved mysteries, children’s books, poetry, memoirs, acclaimed contemporary fiction, seminal works of cultural criticism, and much more. The authors of the included books are diverse and span ethnicity, gender, race, and sexual orientation; they run the gamut from Javier Marías to Haruki Murakami to Colson Whitehead to Claudia Rankine to Jhumpa Lahiri.

Mustich will also discuss Seattle authors Neal Stephenson, Ivan Doig, Nancy Pearl, Betty MacDonald and Sherman Alexie.

James Mustich began his career in bookselling at an independent bookstore in Briarcliff Manor, New York, in the early 1980s. In 1986, he co-founded the acclaimed book catalog, A Common Reader, and was its guiding force for two decades. He has subsequently worked as an editorial and product development executive in the publishing industry. He lives with his wife, Margot, in Connecticut.

Mary Ann Gwinn is a Pulitzer-Prize winning reporter at the Seattle Times. Gwinn was for many years the editor of book reviews at the paper and now writes a regular column on books for the Seattle daily and other national publications. (FolioSeattle)

Folio Voices: Paul Dorpat and Jean Sherrard on Now and Then
Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum, Wednesday, November 7 at 5:30pm
For the past 36 years, public historian Paul Dorpat has produced photo-history columns that pair an old photo of the city with a contemporary photo from the same perspective. Now from those 1,800 columns, Dorpat and his collaborator Jean Sherrard (who serves as the column's "now" photographer) have produced a coffee-table compilation, "Seattle Now and Then: The Historic Hundred." Dorpat and Sherrard will be on hand to show photos, talk history, and sign books.

Dorpat and Sherrard's epic chronicling of the city is sweetened with wit and peppered with an eye for the offbeat. In the debate about rapid growth and loss of character buildings, the book provides vivid evidence of losses and gains. (FolioSeattle)
