Hugo House is Seattle’s local literary hub. They offer many classes and educational programs, but their commitment to learning is deep in their bones and each and every one of their events will expand your mind, at least a little. Most importantly, they put a heavy emphasis on feeding the Seattle scene, so most of their featured readers live in the area and support the local writing community. This is the place to come if you’re wondering about the specificities of Pacific Northwest authors. (JULIA RABAN)
