      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

    9. The Whale Trail Speaker Series: “Protected Zones for Puget Sound Orcas” @ C & P Coffee Company
      7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

      The latest in a new series of Orca Talks hosted by The Whale Trail in West Seattle takes place Thursday October 30th, 7:00–9:00 pm at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor). $5 suggested donation, kids free. Tickets are available online.

      “A Protected Zone for Puget Sound Orcas”
      Bruce Stedman, Orca Relief

      The Southern Resident Killer Whales are endangered and seriously declining; their 2014 population of 79 is the lowest since 1985. To aid their recovery, Orca Relief is urging NOAA Fisheries to conduct a public process that will result in a Whale Protection Zone for the SRKWs.

      A well designed and enforced WPZ would provide the Southern Resident Orca a safe-haven in the very core of their critical habitat, and a relief from vessel impacts including noise, disturbance and air pollution. Bruce Stedman, Executive Director of Orca Relief will describe the key aspects of how a protected area for the Orca should be developed and how it could help
      the SRKWs begin to recover.

      Join us to hear the latest about the orcas, and updates from Robin Lindsay (Seal Sitters), and Diver Laura James (tox-ick.org). This is the first in a new series of Orca Talks hosted by The Whale Trail in West Seattle.

      Buy tickets ahead of time and we’ll save you a seat! And hurry – this will likely sell out.

      About the Speaker
      The Executive Director of Orca Relief Citizens’ Alliance, Bruce Stedman has more than three decades of experience in marine conservation, ocean health issues, and whale conservation. He was one of the core team that built the Whale Museum (Friday Harbor, WA) and was its first curator. He has directed five other conservation and environmental organizations, as well as working as an environmental mediator for 15 years. He has facilitated or mediated more than 100 decision-making or information-sharing processes on many environmental topics, and designed/conducted more than 55 workshops or study tours for public officials and technical specialists from over 40 countries. Trained at University of Washington and MIT, Mr. Stedman has taught conservation and environmental courses at Harvard, MIT, Tufts, and Western Washington Universities.

      About The Whale Trail
      The Whale Trail (www.thewhaletrail.org) is a series of sites around the region where the public may view orcas and other marine mammals from shore. Our mission is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of whales and our marine environment by establishing a network of viewing sites along the whales’ trails through the Salish Sea and the coastal waters of the Pacific Northwest.

      Our goals are to increase awareness that our marine waters are home to orcas and other species; connect visitors to orcas, other marine wildlife and their habitat; inspire stewardship and build community; promote land-based whale watching. Our over-arching goal is to ensure the southern resident orcas do not go extinct.

      The Whale Trail provides simple, powerful, and long-lasting reminders to visitors and residents alike that orcas and other whales live in our waters. Through our current sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 22 million people each year. Our near-term goals are to add a site in every coastal county in Washington, and around Vancouver Island, throughout the orcas’ range. Together, we will turn the tide for the whales!

      The Whale Trail is led by a core team of partners including NOAA Fisheries, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Seattle Aquarium, the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, and the Whale Museum. Donna Sandstrom is the Founder and Executive Director. The Whale Trail is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, registered in Washington State.

    10. *7:30 pm* – “Dogfight” @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

      Performances: Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Join LA-based film director and boxer fighter Jill Morley on November 11th at the Youngstown Arts and Cultural Center in West Seattle for a screening of her documentary Fight Like a Girl (www.FightLikeAGirlTheMovie.com).

Free tickets online at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fight-like-a-girl-tickets-13978805985

      Fight Like a Girl is an ode to overcoming demons through boxing that tells a larger story about abuse, trauma, mental illness, and healing. Its creator Jill Morley is a prolific artist and media voice. Her other award-winning films have appeared at the American Film Institute, the Santa Barbara Film Festival, The Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival and the International San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, and have run on the Sundance Channel. She has also written extensively for publications like The Village Voice and Bust Magazine, and worked as a producer on NPR’s This American Life and Michael Moore’s The Awful Truth. Morley believes in the power of supporting young women through programs like Reel Grrls, and is coming to Seattle for this screening of her film and to kick off the campaign benefiting the organization.

      Early this fall, Reel Grrls welcomed new Executive Director Nancy Chang, who has brought refreshing energy back to Reel Grrls. Nancy is a tenacious and accomplished youth program innovator. She brings deep and authentic youth community development experience to Reel Grrls from her position as Co-Founder and Board Chair of Skate Like a Girl, a non-profit promoting an all-inclusive skateboarding community. With a background in art and public administration, she has successfully applied her skills to developing creative solutions for building healthy communities, shifting culture, and maintaining fiscally sound programming in the cities of Redmond, Seattle and beyond.

      Nancy, Jill, and the board of Reel Grrls welcome you to this one-of-a-kind event, where you’ll also learn about our community-based program design approach and how to get more involved in Reel Grrls. Reel Grrls is proud to partner as a resident organization with Youngstown Cultural Arts Center. The event is free, doors open at 6 pm, and the program starts at 7 pm.

      6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

      Performances: Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

This man personifies the word ‘free-flow.’ Page takes to the mic and the song invents itself on the spot; his talent is a natural wonder.” http://www.nodepression.com/profile/JimPage

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013.

      About the Show:
      Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. In Tom Stoppard’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.

      “Very funny, very brilliant, very chilling; it has the dust of thought about it and the particles glitter excitingly in the theatrical air. ” – The New York Times

      “A stimulating, funny, imaginative comedy.” – The New York Daily News

    5. Words, Writers & West Seattle: Sandi Doughton @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
      5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      “Words, Writers & West Seattle” Presents Seattle Times’ Science Reporter, Sandi Doughton.

      Full Rip 9.0: The Next Big Earthquake in the Pacific NW
      Sponsored by Southwest Seattle Historical Society at Nov. 7th “First Friday” event

      Sandi Doughton will be speaking about “Full Rip 9.0: The Next Big Earthquake in the Pacific NW” (Sasquatch Books, 2013), the first popular account of what scientists are piecing together about the risks of anticipated destruction, including the compelling story of Seattle’s last large quake and just how big the next one will be.

      The public is invited to this FREE series from 5 to 7 pm at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

      In “Full Rip 9.0….” Doughton introduces readers to the scientists dedicated to understanding the way the earth moves and describes what patterns can be identified and how prepared (or not) people are. With a 100% chance of a mega-quake hitting the Pacific Northwest, this fascinating book is about what scientists are saying and trying to understand about the risks of the predicted “big one.” Scientists have identified Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver as the urban centers of what will be the biggest earthquake in the continental United States.

      An award-winning science writer for The Seattle Times, Doughton has been covering Northwest earthquakes for nearly 20 years, first at The News Tribune of Tacoma and for the past decade at The Seattle Times. Her first science-writing job was in Los Alamos, New Mexico, birthplace of the atomic bomb and the center of some of the country’s most cutting edge and controversial research — including work on laser fusion and the “Star Wars” missile defense system.

      Doughton’s reporting has taken her to the Bering Sea, where she covered climate change and chased seals over pancake ice, and to Africa, where she tracked the Gates Foundation’s efforts to develop a malaria vaccine.

      However, earthquake science is her favorite subject, because it’s a great example of the way research can make a real difference to society and in people’s lives. Doughton lives in West Seattle — not far from the Seattle Fault.

      Words, Writers & West Seattle’s next FIRST FRIDAY “book talk” is scheduled for December 5th and will feature West Seattle author, Karen Robbins, presenting Shoe Print Art: Step into Drawing. Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by calling Dora-Faye Hendricks, chair, “Words, Writers & West Seattle”, by phone at 206-280-9983, or by e-mail at: Dora-Faye@comcast.net.

      Sarah Alisabeth Fox highlights the personal cost of nuclear testing and uranium extraction in the American West through extensive interviews with “downwinders,” the Native American and non-Native residents of the Great Basin region affected by nuclear environmental contamination and nuclear-testing fallout. In chilling detail Downwind brings to light the stories and concerns of groups whose voices have been silenced and marginalized for decades in the name of patriotism and national security.

      10:00 am – 2:00 pm

      On Saturday, November 8, 10 am–2 pm, hundreds of volunteers will pitch in at parks around Seattle to help restore forest habitat as part of Green Seattle Day. In West Seattle, Nature Consortium will host volunteers in the West Duwamish Greenbelt, the city’s largest remaining forest.

      For more information or to sign up to volunteer, visit www.naturec.org/green-seattle-day/

      Green Seattle Day is an annual day of service organized by the Green Seattle Partnership, a collaboration between the City of Seattle, Forterra, non-profit partners, and thousands of committed volunteers that seek to create a sustainable network of healthy forested parklands in the city.

      Seattle’s wealth of parks has made it one of the greenest cities in the nation, as ranked by the International Business Times. But without a coordinated effort, Seattle is at risk of losing 70% of its forests in just 20 years due to threats from invasive weeds and the effects of urbanization.

      Volunteering in local parks is a meaningful way for people of all ages to connect with nature, get exercise, and support the environment. On Green Seattle Day in the West Duwamish Greenbelt, Nature Consortium will lead volunteers in tree planting and invasive weed removal.

      Volunteers can also enjoy live music while they work and participate in nature-based art activities as part of Nature Consortium’s Eco Arts program.

      The Green Seattle Partnership manages about 2,500 acres of forested parkland with nonprofit partners like Forterra, Nature Consortium, and EarthCorps. Nature Consortium has been working to restore forest habitat in the West Duwamish Greenbelt since 2003.

      South Seattle College (WSB sponsor) hosts “Throwbacks and Unsual” art exhibit Wednesday, November 12 – Wednesday, December 10, 2014 at the South Seattle College Art Gallery (Jerry Brockey Student Center), 6000 16th SW in Seattle.


      “Throwbacks and Unsual”
      An Exhibition of pottery curated by James Lobb
      Wednesday, November 12 – Wednesday, December 10, 2014

      Reception: Wednesday November 19th, 2014, 12:00 pm–2:00 pm

      Throwbacks and Unusual is an exhibition of handmade pottery by Seattle area artists Alix Broduer, Wally Bivens, Damien Grava, Isaac Howard, James Lobb, Deborah Schwartzkopf, George Rodriguez, and Ellie Weber. Many artists in this show take a unique approach to familiar pottery forms. Some of these potters choose to look back for inspiration, to a time when the handmade object was much more common place in the home. Others are inventing new uses and new ceramic objects for the evolving 21st century domestic setting. Regardless of the approach,this is not only a remarkable collection of pieces, but demonstrates the wide range of possibilities that handmade pottery can be.

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

      Performances: Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Tickets:
      $7 with reservation (email tickets@westsidedrama.com)
      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. In Tom Stoppard’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.

      “Very funny, very brilliant, very chilling; it has the dust of thought about it and the particles glitter excitingly in the theatrical air. ” – The New York Times

      “A stimulating, funny, imaginative comedy.” – The New York Daily News

      Help plant, tend, weed and harvest green leafy crops, berries, fruiting trees and other plants during this growing season at our huge urban garden and orchard! It’s time to prune trees and berry bushes, and develop ideal individual soil preparations for each crop to be planted.

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      Did you know that it takes only 3 minutes to bake a pita? While the whole process takes a little longer, flatbread or pocketbread is relatively quick and easy to make, and it’s a delicious bread to share with friends and family. Join us as we learn the entire process from flour to loaf: mixing, kneading, rising, and baking. We’ll provide all the ingredients and you’ll make your very own breads to take home, warm out of the oven! We’ll also learn to make yummy dips to fill our pocketbread ( such as hummus, babaganouj, or tzatziki).

      Our Daily Armor: Woman as Warrior in Contemporary Art and Adornment

      November 13th to December 4th, 2014. History and mythology abounds with tales of warriors. Men who acted as servants to powerful ideals, through fierce bravery in battle, either lived to celebrate and fight again, or lost their life in the field and gained special favor for their valor and sacrifice in the after-life. Lesser known are histories and mythologies of powerful female warriors, although women have fought in battles throughout the ages, and do still.

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

      Performances: Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. In Tom Stoppard’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.

      “Very funny, very brilliant, very chilling; it has the dust of thought about it and the particles glitter excitingly in the theatrical air. ” – The New York Times

      “A stimulating, funny, imaginative comedy.” – The New York Daily News

      WINNER! Tony® Award for Best Play

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!”

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

      About the Show:
      Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. In Tom Stoppard’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.

      “Very funny, very brilliant, very chilling; it has the dust of thought about it and the particles glitter excitingly in the theatrical air. ” – The New York Times

      “A stimulating, funny, imaginative comedy.” – The New York Daily News

      Are you eating breakfast this coming Saturday, November 15th, from 8:30 to 11:30 am? Then come enjoy a delicious pancake breakfast including coffee, bacon and fruit; all while helping bring clean water to families who desperately need it! West Side Presbyterian Church will host a pancake breakfast for Women’s Enterprises International (WEI).

      All proceeds from the breakfast helps WEI, a Seattle based non-profit that matches funds raised by organized women’s groups in Kenya. These groups use the funds to buy rainwater catchment tanks for their homesteads and their communities. Without the tanks, women as young as 12, walk for hours each day to bring unclean water to their families and then they have to treat the water. Rainwater is clean and available if it can be caught.

      Come meet the organization’s co-founder. We look forward to seeing you and are suggesting a donation of just $5 per person or $20 per family. No obligation!

      10:00 am – 2:00 pm

      Volunteer at College Street Ravine with Dow Constantine

      Dow Constantine is a West Seattle local who got his start in politics through his environmental work with the Friends of the College Street Ravine many years ago. Before becoming King County Executive, Dow worked with his local community to save the five-acre green space from threats of development.

      After Dow was elected, he asked Nature Consortium to continue the work he started at College Street Ravine. Since 2010, we’ve celebrated Dow’s birthday, and sometimes half-birthday, with live music and community service.

      This year, we invite you, your family, and your neighbors to volunteer with Nature Consortium to plant trees and shrubs in the ravine and remove invasive weeds to help our local habitat heal. Volunteering is an excellent way to meet neighbors, enjoy the outdoors, and support the community we all share.

      When: Saturday, November 15, 10 am to 2 pm
      Where: SW College Street and 51st Avenue SW

      Register Here:
      www.naturec.org/volunteer/dow-constantine-day/

      No experience is necessary, and Nature Consortium will provide the tools and training you need to work. Live music for the event will be provided while you work by local trombonist Marc Smason.

      In addition to Dow’s birthday, you can also join Nature Consortium at College Street Ravine on the first Tuesday of every month. Visit www.naturec.org/volunteer to RSVP.

      An Exhibition of pottery curated by guest James Lobb
      Wednesday November 19th, 2014, 12:00 pm–2:00 pm

      Throwbacks and Unusual is an exhibition of handmade pottery by Seattle area artists Alix Broduer, Wally Bivens, Damien Grava, Isaac Howard, James Lobb, Deborah Schwartzkopf, George Rodriguez, and Ellie Weber. Many artists in this show take a unique approach to familiar pottery forms. Some of these potters choose to look back for inspiration, to a time when the handmade object was much more common place in the home. Others are inventing new uses and new ceramic objects for the evolving 21st century domestic setting. Regardless of the approach,this is not only a remarkable collection of pieces, but demonstrates the wide range of possibilities that handmade pottery can be.

      WordsWest Literary Series Presents:
      Pie and Plenty with Kate Lebo and Molly Wizenberg
      Favorite Poem by Delridge Grocery Co-op
      Wednesday, November 19th, 2014, 7:00 pm
      at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor)

      West Seattle WordsWest Literary Series is a monthly invitation to hear world-class writers from near and far and to join and nurture the West Seattle literary community.

      What is the simple link between savoring good food and living a good life? How does what happens in the kitchen, what is served at the table, make a key difference to the interactions between friends and family both in our homes and in our local restaurants?

      For the November 19, 2014 edition of WordsWest Literary Series, pie poet extraordinaire Kate Lebo and New York Times Bestselling author Molly Wizenberg will read their work and explore with the audience connections between handcrafted food, creative kitchens and the written word.

      In honor of Thanksgiving, a holiday focused on thanks as well as great food, all proceeds from sales of the evening’s donated pie (Kate) and chocolate-chip cookies with gray salt (Molly) will go to West Seattle Food Bank.

      Kate Lebo’s poems and prose have appeared in New England Review, Best New Poets, the Rumpus, Gastronomica, Willow Springs, and Poetry Northwest, and she’s the author of two books about the folk art of pie-making, A Commonplace Book of Pie and Pie School: Lessons in Fruit, Flour, and Butter. For more, visit katelebo.com.

      Molly Wizenberg is a Seattle-based writer, photographer, and co-owner of two restaurants, Delancey and Essex. She is the voice behind the award-winning
      blog Orangette and the author of two New York Times bestsellers, A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table, and Delancey: A Man, A Woman, A Restaurant, A Marriage. When she’s not busy with that stuff, she’s hanging out with her husband Brandon, daughter June, and two dogs named Jack and Alice.

      Every third Wednesday, 7 pm, at C & P Coffee Company, WordsWest hosts literary events that range from readings by published local and national authors, to craft discussions and guided writing explorations for every experience level. Folks from local, independent businesses share a favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project. On November 19, Delridge Grocery Co-op, will join us.

      WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw. For more information, please contact: wordswestliterary@gmail.com.

    21. *7:30 pm* – “Dogfight” @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

      Performances: Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

    17. Community meeting: Special Meeting: Church of Nazarene Comprehensive Plan Amendment @ The Kenney
      7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

      From the Morgan Community Association (MoCA):

      Thursday, Nov 20, 7:00 pm
      Location: The Kenney (WSB sponsor), in Community Room

      Special Meeting regarding the Church of Nazarene Comprehensive Plan Amendment to finalize language. MoCA membership previously endorsed the plan of the Nazarene Church to develop a vacant portion of their property near the corner of 42nd and Juneau for 6 townhome (semi-detached) housing units and a public-access playground/park area. That area, pursuant to the Morgan Junction Neighborhood Plan of 1999, is currently zoned for single-family housing units. The proposed development is within the Urban Village specified in that Plan. In October, MoCA was asked by the Seattle Department of Planning and Development (DPD) to revisit our Neighborhood Plan, to provide stipulated language that would allow a single-case exception to that original 1999 Plan. This would allow the current multi-family proposal to proceed. At the October 15, 2014 MoCA meeting, this was discussed and various options for how to word the Comprehensive Plan amendment were complied. A small committee met afterwards to craft the proposed language for the amendment, which will be presented and voted on at this meeting. Following the meeting, DPD will take our proposed wording and ensure that it meets all city and legal requirements and then present the final amendment legislation to City Council in early 2015.

      It is very important that the all residents of the Morgan Junction Urban Village and the Morgan Junction Stewardship area attend and participate in this meeting. This change to the Morgan Junction Comprehensive Plan is first time we will be amending the goals and policies supporting the Plan since it was created by an extensive community process in 1998-99. We want to make sure that all in Morgan Junction are aware of this proposed language change and the potential impacts of this precedent setting request by the Department of Planning and Development. The Morgan Junction Urban Village boundaries and the surrounding The Morgan Junction Stewardship area can be viewed at http://www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/npi/factsheets/Morgan Junction Residential Urban Village.pdf
