Short Memoir Workshop @ Delridge Library – VENUE CHANGE
Jan 20 @ 4:00 pm – 5:20 pm

Memoir Class in West Seattle

This coming Valentine’s Day, reach beyond the chocolates and flowers and give someone you love something priceless: the gift of your story.

Join writing teacher Martin Piccoli in a two-part writing workshop focused on crafting a short memoir that celebrates the positive impact someone has had on your life. In this class, you will review the basics of memoir, select and shape a personal story you wish to share, and compose your piece. (Much of your independent writing will be completed in the two weeks between the classes, so, yes, there’s homework.)
When this workshop concludes, you will have a solid draft of your story ready to give a friend, a parent, a sibling, a partner, a spouse (along with those chocolates?)–or to keep just for yourself.
West Seattle resident Martin Piccoli is your host for this event. He’s spent the last 25 years teaching writing in the public schools of Seattle, Columbus, Ohio, and Brooklyn. This year he’s taking time out of the classroom to do some personal writing, and hopes with this workshop he can help you do the same.

This workshop is open to the public, though seating will be limited.
The classes will be held at NEW VENUE – DELRIDGE LIBRARY
The classes run from 4pm – 5:20pm
The first class is on Saturday, January 20.
The second class is on Saturday, February 3.
Please bring something to write with, analog or digital.
For more information, please contact Martin (me!) at martinpiccoli@aol.com.

This event is not sponsored by The Seattle Public Library.

‘PEERLESS’ @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Jan 20 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Peerless
By Jiehae Park
Directed by Sara Porkalob

January 18 – February 11, 2018
Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

Asian-American twin sisters M and L will do whatever it takes to win the one coveted affirmative action spot at “The College.” But when the thick acceptance envelope falls into the hands of D, a white male colleague who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs – and eliminate anyone who stands in their way. Jiehae Park’s clever and incisive adaptation of Macbeth explores how the drive to succeed can become an all-consuming – and deadly – obsession.

“With its staccato rhythms, short scenes, and farcical characters, unlike any you’ve ever seen before onstage, it’s hard to know how to characterize this play, except to say that it’s unexpectedly wonderful.” – The Arts Fuse

Tickets are available online at or at the Box Office: 206-938-0339.

Meet a Muslim @ Westside Unitarian Universalist Congregation
Jan 21 @ 10:30 am – 1:00 pm

Moina Shaiq speaks during 10:30 am service, stays for community conversation noon-1 pm. All welcome.

A committee of Seattle University students, a local non-profit and several individuals have been working for months to bring Moina Shaiq’s “Meet a Muslim” program to greater Seattle: January 17-23, 2018.

About “Meet A Muslim”

Moina Shaiq started “Meet A Muslim” as a casual gathering in response to the San Bernadino shootings of 2015. It was an attempt to reach out to people in her community who might be interested in learning more about Islam by directly asking questions. Surprisingly, about 100 people showed up and she realized that there were many people looking to understand more about Muslims but don’t know how to go about it.

In Shaiq’s presentations, she talks for 10 minutes, and then opens it up for questions. She says, “I will not be offended-they can ask me anything.” Shaiq said she started her program to educate people about her faith and culture while addressing people’s misconceptions and stereotypes. Moina explains the importance of the hijab (head scarf) or niqab (face covering), the differences between Sunnis and Shias, the rights of women in Islam, and what it’s like to be an American Muslim today.

Learn more at: https://www.facebook.com/MeetAMuslimCommunity/

In January, she will be meeting with a variety of community groups at restaurants, churches, colleges, middle/high schools, and mosques to deliver her signature “Meet A Muslim” program in Seattle. Some are private events, but at least nine scheduled events are open to the public. There are three ticketed events and the remaining public events are available for drop in (donations requested).

Kerri Kokias reading during Arbor Heights Cooperative Preschool Bookfair @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
Jan 21 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

My picture book, Snow Sisters! came out with Knopf/Random House earlier this month. I have several West Seattle events/story times scheduled that I’m hoping you might help share with our community.

The first is at Barnes and Noble this Sunday, January 21st at 11:00am. It’s part of a book fair/fundraiser for Arbor Heights Cooperative Preschool, where my children both attended school before moving on to elementary school at West Seattle Montessori. I will lead a winter themed story time and craft, and a portion of every game, book, or treat purchase will be donated to the school. Community members are encouraged to shop and support Arbor Heights Cooperative Preschool through the weekend, even if they can’t make the story time. As long as we are promoting the book fair, and bringing in business to Barnes and Noble, it is not necessary for community members to be part of the school to help with this fundraiser. Simply share the book fair ID number 12310967 at checkout. And of course, everyone is welcome at the story time! https://stores.barnesandnoble.com/event/9780061910635-0

I will also be doing a story time at West Seattle Library on Wednesday, January 24th at 10:30 am and at Southwest Library on Thursday, February 15th at 10:30 am.

Snow Sisters! By Kerri Kokias and Teagan White
ISBN 97811019388836
Knopf Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: January 2, 2018

Just like snowflakes, no two sisters are alike, but that doesn’t mean they can’t work together to make the perfect snow day! A heartwarming sibling story.

When snowflakes fall, two sisters react very differently. One is excited and the other is wary. The first sister spends the morning outdoors, playing until she’s all tuckered out. Meanwhile, the second sister stays indoors, becoming ever more curious about the drifts outside. Soon, they switch places, and spend the second half of the day retracing each other’s footsteps. But each sister puts her own unique spin on activities like sledding, baking and building.

The simple mirrored text is spare and lovely, and each spread is split to show what each sister is doing independently–until at last they come together in the sweet, satisfying conclusion. LeUyen Pham’s Big Sister, Little Sister meets Kate Messner’s Over and Under the Snow.

Story time with author Kerri Kokias @ West Seattle (Admiral) Library
Jan 24 @ 10:30 am – 11:00 am

My picture book, Snow Sisters! came out with Knopf/Random House earlier this month. I have several West Seattle events/story times scheduled … a story time at West Seattle Library on Wednesday, January 24th at 10:30 am and at Southwest Library on Thursday, February 15th at 10:30 am.

Snow Sisters! By Kerri Kokias and Teagan White
ISBN 97811019388836
Knopf Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: January 2, 2018

Just like snowflakes, no two sisters are alike, but that doesn’t mean they can’t work together to make the perfect snow day! A heartwarming sibling story.

When snowflakes fall, two sisters react very differently. One is excited and the other is wary. The first sister spends the morning outdoors, playing until she’s all tuckered out. Meanwhile, the second sister stays indoors, becoming ever more curious about the drifts outside. Soon, they switch places, and spend the second half of the day retracing each other’s footsteps. But each sister puts her own unique spin on activities like sledding, baking and building.

The simple mirrored text is spare and lovely, and each spread is split to show what each sister is doing independently–until at last they come together in the sweet, satisfying conclusion. LeUyen Pham’s Big Sister, Little Sister meets Kate Messner’s Over and Under the Snow.

‘PEERLESS’ @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Peerless
By Jiehae Park
Directed by Sara Porkalob

January 18 – February 11, 2018
Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

Asian-American twin sisters M and L will do whatever it takes to win the one coveted affirmative action spot at “The College.” But when the thick acceptance envelope falls into the hands of D, a white male colleague who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs – and eliminate anyone who stands in their way. Jiehae Park’s clever and incisive adaptation of Macbeth explores how the drive to succeed can become an all-consuming – and deadly – obsession.

“With its staccato rhythms, short scenes, and farcical characters, unlike any you’ve ever seen before onstage, it’s hard to know how to characterize this play, except to say that it’s unexpectedly wonderful.” – The Arts Fuse

We have a large outreach to the homeless population of West Seattle… Sunday service is 6 PM held in the fellowship of our dear friends at St. John The Baptist Episcopal Church – enter through the doors on the southeast corner of 42nd Ave & SW Hanford SW. 206/890-8110.

‘PEERLESS’ (matinée) @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Jan 28 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Peerless
By Jiehae Park
Directed by Sara Porkalob

January 18 – February 11, 2018
Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

Asian-American twin sisters M and L will do whatever it takes to win the one coveted affirmative action spot at “The College.” But when the thick acceptance envelope falls into the hands of D, a white male colleague who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs – and eliminate anyone who stands in their way. Jiehae Park’s clever and incisive adaptation of Macbeth explores how the drive to succeed can become an all-consuming – and deadly – obsession.

“With its staccato rhythms, short scenes, and farcical characters, unlike any you’ve ever seen before onstage, it’s hard to know how to characterize this play, except to say that it’s unexpectedly wonderful.” – The Arts Fuse

Tickets are available online at or at the Box Office: 206-938-0339.

Peerless
By Jiehae Park
Directed by Sara Porkalob

January 18 – February 11, 2018
Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

Asian-American twin sisters M and L will do whatever it takes to win the one coveted affirmative action spot at “The College.” But when the thick acceptance envelope falls into the hands of D, a white male colleague who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs – and eliminate anyone who stands in their way. Jiehae Park’s clever and incisive adaptation of Macbeth explores how the drive to succeed can become an all-consuming – and deadly – obsession.

“With its staccato rhythms, short scenes, and farcical characters, unlike any you’ve ever seen before onstage, it’s hard to know how to characterize this play, except to say that it’s unexpectedly wonderful.” – The Arts Fuse

Come listen to Dave Holo and his talented musical mates! Here’s what Dave has to say about his own musical journey, “Stumbling onto the local traditional jazz scene a few years after moving to Seattle was huge for me. I’ve been blessed in many ways. Regardless, it would be hard for me to overstate the impact of jazz on my life. I’ve met most of my friends through jazz; I’ve traveled; I’ve played and recorded with some amazing musicians. I really love those nights when I have my best stuff, the band has it all working, and we make a real connection with an audience … wow! It’s pretty heady stuff!”

Live music and a Waterfront View of the City. Enjoy the famous Salty’s food and fare, but there is no food or drink minimum.

Short Memoir Workshop @ Delridge Library – VENUE CHANGE
Feb 3 @ 4:00 pm – 5:20 pm

Memoir Class in West Seattle

This coming Valentine’s Day, reach beyond the chocolates and flowers and give someone you love something priceless: the gift of your story.

Join writing teacher Martin Piccoli in a two-part writing workshop focused on crafting a short memoir that celebrates the positive impact someone has had on your life. In this class, you will review the basics of memoir, select and shape a personal story you wish to share, and compose your piece. (Much of your independent writing will be completed in the two weeks between the classes, so, yes, there’s homework.)
When this workshop concludes, you will have a solid draft of your story ready to give a friend, a parent, a sibling, a partner, a spouse (along with those chocolates?)–or to keep just for yourself.
West Seattle resident Martin Piccoli is your host for this event. He’s spent the last 25 years teaching writing in the public schools of Seattle, Columbus, Ohio, and Brooklyn. This year he’s taking time out of the classroom to do some personal writing, and hopes with this workshop he can help you do the same.

This workshop is open to the public, though seating will be limited.
The classes will be held at NEW VENUE – DELRIDGE LIBRARY
The classes run from 4pm – 5:20pm
The first class is on Saturday, January 20.
The second class is on Saturday, February 3.
Please bring something to write with, analog or digital.
For more information, please contact Martin (me!) at martinpiccoli@aol.com.

Harvest of Empire
The Untold Story of Latinos in America

Based on the groundbreaking book by award-winning journalist and Democracy Now co-host, Juan González, this film reveals the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America, and immigration today.

Featuring real-life stories and rare archival footage, the movie examines the events and conditions that have led millions of Latino families to leave their homelands in an unprecedented wave of migration. From wars for territorial expansion to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes, it unveils a story largely unknown to most U.S. citizens.

Some graphic violence. Not recommended for children.

90 minutes; Spanish subtitles

Directed by Peter Getzels and Eduardo López, 2012

Trailer: http://harvestofempiremovie.com (in both English and Spanish)

After the film, members of Hate-Free Delridge will share ideas and facilitate a discussion about how we can support local immigrants. The discussion will be interpreted into Spanish.

‘PEERLESS’ (matinée) @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Peerless
By Jiehae Park
Directed by Sara Porkalob

January 18 – February 11, 2018
Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

Asian-American twin sisters M and L will do whatever it takes to win the one coveted affirmative action spot at “The College.” But when the thick acceptance envelope falls into the hands of D, a white male colleague who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs – and eliminate anyone who stands in their way. Jiehae Park’s clever and incisive adaptation of Macbeth explores how the drive to succeed can become an all-consuming – and deadly – obsession.

“With its staccato rhythms, short scenes, and farcical characters, unlike any you’ve ever seen before onstage, it’s hard to know how to characterize this play, except to say that it’s unexpectedly wonderful.” – The Arts Fuse

Tickets are available online at or at the Box Office: 206-938-0339.
