12 man

7:30 AM – Mark Tye Turner: Notes from a 12 Man: A Truly Biased History of the Seattle Seahawks
Elliott Bay Book Co.
“The Seattle Seahawks retired number 12 in honor of the “Twelfth Man” — those fans who remained devoted no matter what. Written as a series of small essays and lists, with the same sly humor author Mark Turner brought to his scripts for “Talk Soup” and “Blind Date, ” this passionate “fan-oir” covers the team’s highlights, lowlights, and everything in between. Themed sections include “In the Beginning,” “Pop Goes the Culture,” “Transitions,” and recurring chapters that offer play-by-play reportage and analysis of notable victories and notorious losses.” – Publisher’s summary

7:00 PM – Lorrie More: A Gate at the Stairs
SPL Central Library Microsoft Auditorium
“Moore knits together the shadow of 9/11 and a young girl’s bumpy coming-of-age in this luminous, heart-wrenchingly wry novel—the author’s first in 15 years. Tassie Keltjin, 20, a smalltown girl weathering a clumsy college year in ‘the Athens of the Midwest,’ is taken on as prospective nanny … In a parallel tale, Tassie lands a lover … Moore’s graceful prose considers serious emotional and political issues with low-key clarity and poignancy, while generous flashes of wit … endow this stellar novel with great heart.” – Publishers Weekly

7:00 PM – Ted Falcon, Don MacKenzie, Jamal Rahman: Getting to the Heart of Interfaith: The Eye-Opening, Hope-Filled Friendship of a Rabbi, Pastor and Sheikh!

Exactly what it sounds like.
