Children’s Academy of Seattle open house
Oct 1 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Children’s Academy of Seattle, a Spanish-immersion preschool, is having an open house at their second West Seattle location on October 1st and October 8th, 10:00 am to noon:

Children’s Academy of Seattle
Spanish Immersion Program
Ages: 2 months to 5 years old

Date: Saturday October 1st and
Saturday October 8th

Hours: 10:00 am- Noon

Address: 9635 17th Ave SW, Seattle WA 98106.

The program at Children’s Academy of Seattle supports optimal Spanish-language learning by tying language to a broad range of day-to-day activities. Children learn language best by experiencing it naturally, by being immersed in it.

The benefits go beyond being bilingual. Exposure to another language, through immersion, provides cultural competency and sensitivity to others. Language immersion takes advantage of a child’s natural ability to rapidly acquire another language. At no time in life is this task easier than in early childhood.

Children’s Academy of Seattle believes that young children develop to their fullest potential when they are allowed to enjoy life at an unhurried pace. Our program focuses on imagination and creative work and play. Our center offers a rich curriculum and hands-on learning, science, and social skills.

Our staff has a minimum of five years teaching child development experience. Our high-quality program with experienced teachers ensures success in learning a second language.

Ghosts @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Oct 1 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Ghosts
September 22 – October 23, 2016
By Henrik Ibsen
Adaptation by Richard Eyre
2014 Olivier Award Winning Best Revival

Illuminated with fresh poetry and dark humor in a stunning new adaptation from acclaimed British director Richard Eyre, Henrik Ibsen’s Ghosts was seen as a scandalous work when it was first performed in 1892. The story follows the widow Helene Alving as she tries to start her life anew after the death of her philandering husband. She is determined that her son Oswald will not follow the same path through life as his father, but when Oswald returns home from a trip to France, she discovers that she may already be too late.

“Searingly in this version, possibly the best you’ll ever see, “Ghosts” remains the great historical example of a single play’s power to disturb.” — The New York Times

“Director Richard Eyre‘s new adaptation thrillingly conveys the play’s devastating power, bringing this vintage play to moving, harrowing life.” — The Hollywood Reporter

“Richard Eyre’s crisp, deft adaptation is both bold and intimate, and has the streamlined speediness of a Greek tragedy and the tension of a thriller.” — The Guardian

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

Making the Mosses & Wildflowers Grow @ Lincoln Park
Oct 2 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

With Naturalist Stewart Wechsler:

Sunday October 2, 2016 at 10:00 am–1:00 pm, Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures offers: Making Mosses & Wildflowers Grow as We Sit on the Moss Bed – Lincoln Park:

Seattle’s rainy season is back, and the mosses have turned a brighter green! The moss layer is more important to our local natural communities than most people realize. Learn how the mosses, not only make a beautiful bottom layer of the plant community, but also help the other community members from the yellow Evergreen Violets to the Twinflowers, and likely even the Phantom Orchids. You can both help the mosses that grow on the ground, and the wildflowers that grow in those mosses. Stewart can teach you some of the story of almost any natural community member from the birds to the beetles, the mushrooms to the mosses, and the wildflowers to the weeds, that we see, hear or smell as we engage in the contemplative and calming task of helping the mosses grow while we sit on the moss bed. While you don’t need them, if you have them, you might bring a Hori Hori weeding tool, a maybe a good pair of leather gloves, and possibly a hand snippers, and maybe binoculars for the birds.

We will meet at Lincoln Park’s north parking lot (between SW Monroe St and SW Thistle St) by the kiosk at 10:00 am Sunday, October 2nd. You have the option to join us for coffee and pastries at Cafe Ladro (7011 California Ave SW) beforehand! Coffee hour starts at 8:30 am. I ask that people preregister to ensure that the group size is manageable both for me and the mosses. e-mail me at ecostewart@gmail.com or phone me at 206 932-7225 (currently only land line).

No fee is required for this program, but Stewart appreciates any useful support that the human community gives him that will help the growth of the success of his efforts towards the protection and recovery of the natural wealth of our unique local natural community.

At the Delridge Library Sunday, October 2, 2016, 2–4 pm:

Learn techniques to create and maintain conflict in your novel with author Karen Finneyfrock.

Stories are their conflicts. In this workshop for writers working on a novel, we will use readings, discussion, and writing exercises to explore the inherent conflicts that make up the world of our stories: conflict with nature, society, law, and conflict between people. Come prepared to write.

Karen Finneyfrock is the author of two young adult novels and two collections of poetry. She has been a teacher and Writer in Residence at Hugo House, teaches for Seattle Arts and Lectures’ Writers in the Schools program, and is the curator for the 2016 Jack Straw Writers Program

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required for this writing class, but seating is limited. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. Doors to the meeting room will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the class. We’ll try our best to make room for all interested writers, but students may be turned away if the room is filled to capacity. Due to the fire code, we cannot exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

Please bring a pen/pencil and paper or fully-charged laptop to each class.

Accommodation requests may be made with seven days advanced notice to leap@spl.org or (206) 615-1380 (v/tty).

Seattle Writes supports local writers through programs, workshops, write-ins, and by providing spaces to work throughout the city.

Space is limited at library events. Please come early to make sure you get a seat. Due to the fire code, we can’t exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

Ghosts @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Oct 2 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Ghosts
September 22 – October 23, 2016
By Henrik Ibsen
Adaptation by Richard Eyre
2014 Olivier Award Winning Best Revival

Illuminated with fresh poetry and dark humor in a stunning new adaptation from acclaimed British director Richard Eyre, Henrik Ibsen’s Ghosts was seen as a scandalous work when it was first performed in 1892. The story follows the widow Helene Alving as she tries to start her life anew after the death of her philandering husband. She is determined that her son Oswald will not follow the same path through life as his father, but when Oswald returns home from a trip to France, she discovers that she may already be too late.

“Searingly in this version, possibly the best you’ll ever see, “Ghosts” remains the great historical example of a single play’s power to disturb.” — The New York Times

“Director Richard Eyre‘s new adaptation thrillingly conveys the play’s devastating power, bringing this vintage play to moving, harrowing life.” — The Hollywood Reporter

“Richard Eyre’s crisp, deft adaptation is both bold and intimate, and has the streamlined speediness of a Greek tragedy and the tension of a thriller.” — The Guardian

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

Scratchdog Stringband performs @ C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor)
Oct 2 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Scratchdog Stringband performs at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor) on Sunday October 2nd, 3–5 pm. More from C & P:

Scratchdog has been called ‘rockgrass’ and ‘boot-stompin,’ making for an innovative and dynamic approach to stringband music. Masterfully mixing upright bass, fiddle, guitar and banjo with three-part vocal harmonies, this trio embraces its inherent Americana roots while seamlessly incorporating elements of jazz, country, rock, and blues, promising to thrill any audience. These three mutts are now bringing their collective decades of experience to an enthusiastic American Northwest.

Since early 2015, Scratchdog Stringband has been evolving a new musical amalgamation described by some as Americana/Rockgrass. Based in Portland, OR and touring throughout the West Coast and Midwest, this trio delivers a fresh blend of classic and contemporary acoustic music. These artisans continually hone their technical finesse through exuberant experimentation and intuitive improvisation. The sound that emerges is uniquely “Scratchdog,” deriving from influences in Rock, Folk, Country and Jazz. In 2016, the dogs released their first full-length album, “Three Times Fast.” This CD thoroughly and accurately represents the inimitable craftsmanship and performing style of Scratchdog Stringband, a sound that matures and expands with every show.

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Ghosts
September 22 – October 23, 2016
By Henrik Ibsen
Adaptation by Richard Eyre
2014 Olivier Award Winning Best Revival

Illuminated with fresh poetry and dark humor in a stunning new adaptation from acclaimed British director Richard Eyre, Henrik Ibsen’s Ghosts was seen as a scandalous work when it was first performed in 1892. The story follows the widow Helene Alving as she tries to start her life anew after the death of her philandering husband. She is determined that her son Oswald will not follow the same path through life as his father, but when Oswald returns home from a trip to France, she discovers that she may already be too late.

“Searingly in this version, possibly the best you’ll ever see, “Ghosts” remains the great historical example of a single play’s power to disturb.” — The New York Times

“Director Richard Eyre‘s new adaptation thrillingly conveys the play’s devastating power, bringing this vintage play to moving, harrowing life.” — The Hollywood Reporter

“Richard Eyre’s crisp, deft adaptation is both bold and intimate, and has the streamlined speediness of a Greek tragedy and the tension of a thriller.” — The Guardian

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

Words, Writers & West Seattle: Professor Steven W. Bender @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
Oct 7 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

“Mea Culpa – Lessons on Law and Regret from U.S. History” to be discussed by SU Professor Steven W Bender on October 7th..

In Mea Culpa Bender examines how the United States’ collective shame about its past has shaped the evolution of law and behavior. Drawing on his background as a legal scholar, Bender confronts race, class, immigration and other contentious issues from a new and illuminating angle. Mea Culpa challenges its readers by asking what current practices and policies will later generations regret.

This presentation of Words, Writers & West Seattle’s ‘First Friday’ book-talk, sponsored by The Southwest Seattle Historical Society, is free and held at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village on Friday, October 7th from 5 to 7 pm.

Bender’s Mea Culpa – Lessons on Law and Regret from U.S. History (New York University Press, 2015), examines policies and practices that have affected the lives of groups that have been historically marginalized and oppressed. Analyzing the United States’ historical response to its own atrocities, Bender identifies and develops a definitive moral compass that guides us away from the policies and practices that lead to societal regret.

A West Seattle resident and author, Steven W. Bender is a Professor of Law and Associate Dean for Research and Faculty Development at Seattle University School of Law. He is the author of several books including Greasers and Gringos: Latinos, Law, and the American Imagination (NYU Press, 2003), and One Night in America: Robert Kennedy, César Chávez, and the Dream of Dignity.

“Words, Writers & West Seattle’s” next book-talk is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 4th, and will feature Conrad Wesselhoeft and his latest book, a contemporary novel for young adults, Dirt Bikes, Drones, and Other Ways to Fly (Houghton Miffin Harcourt, Sept., 2015). For videos on these and other authors’ presentations, visit: www.loghousemuseum.info/events/words-writers-and-west-seattle. Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by contacting Dora-Faye Hendricks, Chair, “Words, Writers & West Seattle” by phone at 206-280-9983 or by e-mail at Dora-Faye@comcast.net.

North Delridge Action Plan Workshop @ Southwest Teen Life Center
Oct 8 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

From the Office of Planning & Community Development: We are hosting a Delridge Projects Workshop on October 8 from 9:30 – Noon at the Southwest Teen Life Center. Join your neighbors, community organizations and Departments from the City of Seattle in:

North Delridge Action Plan: Working to make the positive changes you want for North Delridge. See how you can get involved taking action on your priorities.

Delridge Way Multimodal Transportation Project: Reviewing options for transforming Delridge Way SW into a safer and healthier space with predictable movement of people and goods.

Longfellow Creek Natural Drainage: Learning how to improve drainage for a healthy Longfellow Creek and Puget Sound.

Delridge Resource Fair: Promoting awareness and participation in projects and community services taking place around Delridge.

This is the final public workshop for the North Delridge Action Plan. It is the result input from hundreds of your neighbors who helped identify the community’s vision for North Delridge, and prioritize steps that you, organizations and the City can take to make Delridge a healthy and livable neighborhood for all community members. The meeting materials and comments are on the Get Involved page.

As part of this effort we are also working on a more focused community vision for how the neighborhood’s parks and cultural facilities can take a lead role in improving the health of all Delridge communities.

The North Delridge Action Plan and Delridge’s Vision for its Parks and Cultural Facilities will be posted to this website when complete.

An Advisory Core Team (ACT), made of members who represent cross sections of the community, helped guide this project. The ACT began by reviewing background information, the 1999 Delridge Neighborhood Plan, and the comments you provided at Delridge Day and at Gathering of Neighbors in 2014. Since then, they have been meeting almost every month to set direction for this project.

Project Benefits

It has been 16 years since Delridge completed its neighborhood plan. Together, the community and the City have accomplished many of the neighborhood plan goals. However, some of the plan’s priorities are out of date. It’s time to work with the Delridge community to establish current priorities and to develop an action plan to achieve those priorities.

The Delridge Action Plan will use the Healthy Living Framework to focus attention on how neighborhood planning can improve our health, connect people and places, and make sure places serve people. The framework proposes that a healthy Delridge includes strong community and organizations, healthy people and families, and a supportive physical environment.

The Delridge Action Plan seeks to support a healthy neighborhood that:

* Contains diverse households, supported by strong social and cultural institutions and services
* Provides access to resources necessary to meet personal needs, such as healthy food, retail, and commercial destinations
* Includes a natural and man-made environment with infrastructure supporting healthy activities such as parks, sidewalks, playgrounds, transit, shopping, and services

The End Result

Our action plan will define community and City strategies that address key priorities developed through the planning process, with the aim of ensuring Delridge’s people and places can thrive.

Children’s Academy of Seattle open house
Oct 8 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Children’s Academy of Seattle, a Spanish-immersion preschool, is having an open house at their second West Seattle location on October 1st and October 8th, 10:00 am to noon:

Children’s Academy of Seattle
Spanish Immersion Program
Ages: 2 months to 5 years old

Date: Saturday October 1st and
Saturday October 8th

Hours: 10:00 am- Noon

Address: 9635 17th Ave SW, Seattle WA 98106.

The program at Children’s Academy of Seattle supports optimal Spanish-language learning by tying language to a broad range of day-to-day activities. Children learn language best by experiencing it naturally, by being immersed in it.

The benefits go beyond being bilingual. Exposure to another language, through immersion, provides cultural competency and sensitivity to others. Language immersion takes advantage of a child’s natural ability to rapidly acquire another language. At no time in life is this task easier than in early childhood.

Children’s Academy of Seattle believes that young children develop to their fullest potential when they are allowed to enjoy life at an unhurried pace. Our program focuses on imagination and creative work and play. Our center offers a rich curriculum and hands-on learning, science, and social skills.

Our staff has a minimum of five years teaching child development experience. Our high-quality program with experienced teachers ensures success in learning a second language.

Ghosts @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Oct 8 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Ghosts
September 22 – October 23, 2016
By Henrik Ibsen
Adaptation by Richard Eyre
2014 Olivier Award Winning Best Revival

Illuminated with fresh poetry and dark humor in a stunning new adaptation from acclaimed British director Richard Eyre, Henrik Ibsen’s Ghosts was seen as a scandalous work when it was first performed in 1892. The story follows the widow Helene Alving as she tries to start her life anew after the death of her philandering husband. She is determined that her son Oswald will not follow the same path through life as his father, but when Oswald returns home from a trip to France, she discovers that she may already be too late.

“Searingly in this version, possibly the best you’ll ever see, “Ghosts” remains the great historical example of a single play’s power to disturb.” — The New York Times

“Director Richard Eyre‘s new adaptation thrillingly conveys the play’s devastating power, bringing this vintage play to moving, harrowing life.” — The Hollywood Reporter

“Richard Eyre’s crisp, deft adaptation is both bold and intimate, and has the streamlined speediness of a Greek tragedy and the tension of a thriller.” — The Guardian

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

Concert: The Esoterics’ “Wilde” @ Holy Rosary Catholic Church
Oct 8 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Over the course of 2016, The Esoterics have presented several choral concerts inspired by the works of individual poets. In early October, the ensemble will continue this theme, “the voice of the poet,” with a program of new works setting verses by the legendary literary iconoclast, Oscar Wilde. Known for his witty retorts, cultural commentary, pointed plays, and a homosexual scandal that landed him in prison, Wilde is not particularly remembered for his verse. However, The Esoterics thinks that he should be, and has commissioned and curated a program of new compositions that will honor his contributions to the poetic genre.

8 October 2016, 8 pm
at Holy Rosary Catholic Church

In this concert, The Esoterics will reprise its 2014 commission by Dominick DiOrio, The visible world, which sets verses from Wilde’s De profundis, the epic poem he penned while in prison, in which he envisioned a more open and accepting world. The group will also perform Eric Barnum’s Requiescat, an elegy that Wilde composed on the death of his young sister, Isola. The ensemble will also present Australian composer Malcolm Williamson’s setting of Wilde’s Sonnet on hearing the ‘Dies irae’ in the Sistine Chapel. In addition, the group will present the world premiere, of an audience-surrounding, quadriphonic choral work by founding director Eric Banks that a sets seven of Wilde’s poems about the birds that soar in the air, Silhouettes against the sky.

The centerpiece of this program will include three world premieres by the winners of The Esoterics’ annual POLYPHONOS competition: In the gold room: A harmony, a whimsical setting by Gordon Williamson (a Canadian composer who lives in Germany); In the forest, an ethereal piece by the Japanese composer Kenji Oh (who currently lives in Los Angeles); and Endymion, a folky setting about the lover of Selene (the ancient Greek moon goddess) by New York composer Casey Rule. All three composers will be joining us to present their pieces and meet our audience for this entire weekend of concerts!

Please join us, and bring your favorite Oscar Wilde quote to share!

General admission ticket prices are $25 at the door ($22 in advance). Discounted admission ticket prices are $18 at the door ($15 in advance) for students, seniors, the un(der)employed, and the differently-abled. Active singers in other choral groups may also attend for $15. Advance tickets are available online at www.TheEsoterics.org (through PayPal).

The Esoterics’ SEASON 23 has been sponsored with generous support from:
4Culture | ArtsFund | ArtsWA | The Aaron Copland Fund | Classic KING-FM | The Horizons Foundation | Nikko Media Center | The Renaissance Foundation | The Seattle Foundation | Seattle Office of Arts & Culture

Ghosts
September 22 – October 23, 2016
By Henrik Ibsen
Adaptation by Richard Eyre
2014 Olivier Award Winning Best Revival

Illuminated with fresh poetry and dark humor in a stunning new adaptation from acclaimed British director Richard Eyre, Henrik Ibsen’s Ghosts was seen as a scandalous work when it was first performed in 1892. The story follows the widow Helene Alving as she tries to start her life anew after the death of her philandering husband. She is determined that her son Oswald will not follow the same path through life as his father, but when Oswald returns home from a trip to France, she discovers that she may already be too late.

“Searingly in this version, possibly the best you’ll ever see, “Ghosts” remains the great historical example of a single play’s power to disturb.” — The New York Times

“Director Richard Eyre‘s new adaptation thrillingly conveys the play’s devastating power, bringing this vintage play to moving, harrowing life.” — The Hollywood Reporter

“Richard Eyre’s crisp, deft adaptation is both bold and intimate, and has the streamlined speediness of a Greek tragedy and the tension of a thriller.” — The Guardian

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

Community Discussion on Memory Loss Programs in West Seattle @ Senior Center of West Seattle
Oct 14 @ 3:45 pm – 5:15 pm

Seattle is home to a growing movement, Momentia, which empowers people with memory loss to stay active and connected in their communities.

• This involves dementia-friendly programs like walking groups, art-making classes, choirs, book groups, accessible volunteer opportunities, social gatherings and more, that take place in public settings like libraries, museums, parks, theaters and cafes. You can find examples at www.momentiaseattle.org.

• Some of the most innovative programs were suggested by, or designed by, people living with memory loss and their loved ones (including the Out & About walking group, Fridays at the Garden, Taproot Theater’s improv workshops, Cherry Street Food Bank volunteer program, etc).

• This Fall, we’re building Momentia in West Seattle by inviting West Seattle residents with memory loss and their loved ones to come together and design a dementia-friendly program for their neighborhood. Participants will share what they love to do, consider the places they love in West Seattle, and help design a brand new program for themselves and others with memory loss.

• Partners involved include Senior Center of West Seattle, Providence Mt St Vincent, Seattle Parks and Recreation, UW Medicine Memory & Brain Wellness Center, and members of the Momentia Seattle Stewardship Team.

Seattle Writes: Autopsy of a Mystery — Plot, Dialogue and Revision @ West Seattle (Admiral) Library
Oct 15 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

At the West Seattle (Admiral) Library Saturday, October 15, 2016, 2–4 pm:

What makes a good mystery great? Join bestselling mystery writer Ingrid Thoft as she investigates the elements of a page turner.

Stories are their conflicts. In this workshop for writers working on a novel, we will use readings, discussion, and writing exercises to explore the inherent conflicts that make up the world of our stories: conflict with nature, society, law, and conflict between people. Come prepared to write.

Readers want tightly-plotted stories that challenge and make sense; they want a detective – amateur or professional – full of character and depth; they want a story arc that keeps them reading. We’ll take a look at the specifics of plotting a mystery as well as creating a memorable and credible sleuth.

Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Ingrid Thoft is the author of the critically acclaimed Fina Ludlow series. “Loyalty,” “Identity” and “Brutality” feature the Boston private investigator who tangles with the city’s criminal element and her family of personal injury attorneys. The series has been called “sizzling” by Entertainment Weekly and “dazzling” by Publishers Weekly. “Loyalty” was nominated for a Shamus Award for best P.I. novel and received the Spotted Owl Award for best debut mystery by a Pacific Northwest writer; “Brutality” is a finalist for this year’s Shamus Award for best P.I. novel. The novels are currently being developed into a TV series by ABC Studios, and the fourth Fina Ludlow book will be published in January 2017. Ingrid lives in Seattle with her husband and is a member of Seattle7Writers, a collective of Pacific Northwest authors whose mission is to foster and support a passion for the written word.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required for this writing class, but seating is limited. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. Doors to the meeting room will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the class. We’ll try our best to make room for all interested writers, but students may be turned away if the room is filled to capacity. Due to the fire code, we cannot exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

Please bring a pen/pencil and paper or fully-charged laptop to each class.

Accommodation requests may be made with seven days advanced notice to leap@spl.org or (206) 615-1380 (v/tty).

Seattle Writes supports local writers through programs, workshops, write-ins, and by providing spaces to work throughout the city.

Space is limited at library events. Please come early to make sure you get a seat. Due to the fire code, we can’t exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

Ghosts @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Oct 16 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Ghosts
September 22 – October 23, 2016
By Henrik Ibsen
Adaptation by Richard Eyre
2014 Olivier Award Winning Best Revival

Illuminated with fresh poetry and dark humor in a stunning new adaptation from acclaimed British director Richard Eyre, Henrik Ibsen’s Ghosts was seen as a scandalous work when it was first performed in 1892. The story follows the widow Helene Alving as she tries to start her life anew after the death of her philandering husband. She is determined that her son Oswald will not follow the same path through life as his father, but when Oswald returns home from a trip to France, she discovers that she may already be too late.

“Searingly in this version, possibly the best you’ll ever see, “Ghosts” remains the great historical example of a single play’s power to disturb.” — The New York Times

“Director Richard Eyre‘s new adaptation thrillingly conveys the play’s devastating power, bringing this vintage play to moving, harrowing life.” — The Hollywood Reporter

“Richard Eyre’s crisp, deft adaptation is both bold and intimate, and has the streamlined speediness of a Greek tragedy and the tension of a thriller.” — The Guardian
