Seattle7Writers began in 2006, when two Northwest authors, Garth Stein and Jennie Shortridge, got together over coffee to talk shop. Over the next two years, the group expanded and they realized their collective energies could be used not only to promote their own books but to energize their reading communities. They pledged to undertake several community outreach initiatives including pocket libraries in unconventional places, and events designed to support independent bookstores and raise money for literacy and writing programs. Now with 29 authors, Seattle7Writers encourages and promotes Northwest literature with the rallying cry of “Read Local.”
