Book Talks


For many high school students, after nine or more years in public schools, reading can become more of a chore than an enjoyable or educational experience. But reading can also be an escape and a chance to learn from a variety of different voices.

Seattle is a city with an especially rich history in writing and storytelling. Starting next month, The Messenger will be hosting monthly book talks where local authors and influencers come to Garfield to speak about a range of issues from gender and law to feminism and race.
