Bellingham and Seattle Appearances

In September, Stevan Allred will be reading from A Simplified Map of the Real World at two very special Washington bookstores. These appearances are part of our six-city book tour for Stevan’s debut linked short story collection, which is also the first fiction title in Forest Avenue Press’ catalog. We hope to see some of you there, and if you know anyone in Seattle or Bellingham, please spread the word!

The first Washington event is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20, in the Readings Gallery at Village Books in Bellingham, Washington. One of Stevan’s very best friends lives in Bellingham and we’re expecting a celebratory atmosphere and a great turnout, thanks to that local connection. There will even be festive posters hanging around town!

The Seattle reading will feature illustrator Laurie Paus, a bookseller at Elliott Bay Book Company. The store put together a lovely events page highlighting Laurie’s contribution to A Simplified Map of the Real World, and she and Allred will speak at the event, which is scheduled for 5 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 21, at Elliott Bay Book Company, 1521 10th Avenue, Seattle,WA 98122.
