‘Day of Giving’ fundraising event @ West Seattle Junction (see listing)
Apr 30 all-day

Something new in The Junction this month: A “Day of Giving” on April 30th. Participating shops and restaurants will give 10 percent of their proceeds to nonprofits of their choice that day. From the West Seattle Junction Association:

Giving back has always been a part of what it means to be West Seattle. Our deep neighborhood pride comes through in everything we do and exemplifies the spirit of “neighbors helping neighbors.”

In The Junction, our local businesses are proud to give back throughout the year to the many deserving causes in our neighborhood and beyond. Within The Junction business community, there is a profound sense that it’s the right thing to do and that by supporting our local nonprofits we can strengthen our neighborhood and thrive.

In the spirit of that commitment, The Junction businesses are teaming up with their favorite nonprofits for a fun day of shopping and eating to benefit many important causes. On April 30th, each participating business will be donating 10% of their sales to the nonprofit of their choice. Stop by your favorite Junction retailers and restaurants to lend your support and make a difference through your purchases. It’s an easy and fun way to show your community spirit and just how much you care!

You can see the early list of participants, and their chosen recipients, by going to this page on The Junction’s website.

Healthy Kids Day 2016 at the West Seattle Y @ West Seattle YMCA
Apr 30 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Healthy Kids Day at the West Seattle YMCA!

The West Seattle YMCA (WSB sponsor) is inviting all kids and parents to for a free community open house on Saturday, April 30 – Healthy Kids Day®, the Y’s national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids and families. This year marks the 25th annual Healthy Kids Day®, and the goal is to inspire more kids to keep their minds and bodies active.

The first 100 kids receive a free t-shirt and from 10:00 am–1:00 pm the event will feature fun family activities like: a climbing wall, a family ZUMBA® class, free bicycle helmets and fittings for the first 200 kids, healthy drinks from Chaco Canyon and Smith Brothers Farms, gaga ball, pool relays and water safety fun.

New for this year is a branch-wide scavenger hunt with the chance to win great prizes. Learn more and sign up here >> http://ymcahkd.org/

YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day, celebrated at over 1,300 Ys across the country by over 1.2 million participants, works to get more kids moving and learning, creating habits that they continue all year long. During out-of-school time, kids can face hurdles that prevent them from reaching their full potential. Research shows that without access to out-of-school physical and learning activities, kids fall behind academically. Kids also gain weight twice as fast during down time than the school year. The Y hopes to focus on wowing them with their potential and make this their best year ever by staying active and learning.

DRAWTASTIC Festival @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Apr 30 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

DRAWTASTIC Organizer Tony White has joined the WSB sponsor team to get the word out – here’s his announcement:

Pencil April 30th into your diary for Seattle’s most ‘drawsome’ festival of Drawing & Animation, at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in West Seattle! Entry is FREE to the festival, although there is a small charge for the speaker presentations to cover basic costs. The event runs from 11:30 am until 5 pm on Saturday, April 30th.

DRAWTASTIC (WSB sponsor) is the brainchild of British award-winning animator, author and educator, Tony White. With the unceasing rush to modern technology in this digital world it is easy to devalue the most wonderful hardware we have ~ the humble pencil!

Although the creative world fully embraces every technological resource available to it these days, it is almost certain that every idea either begins with pencil sketch, or as a result of years of drawing practice, or even through a full-time application of this most wonderful piece of hardware ~ which even comes with its own rubber ‘undo’ button at the other end!

White therefore is seeking to put the pencil back on its pedestal where it belongs. DRAWTASTIC is a ‘Pencil-fest’ that embraces all the artistic worlds that the pencil touches. Speakers include a top Simpsons animator from LA, an Australian living in New York who has made his own drawn movie and who is flying in to present it for its Seattle premiere, a caricaturist who is acknowledged as the very best the industry offers, and a respected game industry professional who acknowledges like everyone else how the pencil is so fundamentally important to their work.

Additional DRAWTASTIC events include the screening of 62 animated shorts from around the world ~ all vying for a prestigious ‘Golden Pencil Award’ ~ together with a vendor hall where indie work is shown and sold. Other drawing-based events will take place, including a ‘how to caricature’ session and ‘how to draw an animated flipbook.’ White himself will reflect the huge interest in drawing that he’s found through his online ‘Animator’s Sketchclub’ ~ currently possessing over 6,000 worldwide members ~ by hosting his own drawing for animation ‘Happy Hour.’

Entry is FREE to the festival, although there is a small charge for the speaker presentations to cover basic costs. The event runs from 11:30 am until 5 pm on Saturday, April 30th, with a ‘Meet ‘n Greet’ get-together afterward ~ where speakers, vendors and visitors can all meet and chat (presumably about the pencil) in a friendly and relaxed manner. White hopes that the event will once and for all prove the maxim that… ‘Pencils are Drawsome’!

Seattle Writes: Writing the City – Poetry @ Southwest Library
Apr 30 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

At the Southwest Library Saturday, April 30, 2016, 2–4 pm:

Seattle’s Civic Poet, Claudia Castro Luna, will teach beginning poets how to use the city – and its rich mix of sensory experiences and social interactions – as an inspiration and launch pad for writing poetry.

Our daily engagement with the city is full of sensory experiences, social interactions, memories. What we love and fear, what we dread and long for, the city is witness to it all. We’ll write poems inspired by the place we live in.

Claudia Castro Luna is Seattle’s first Civic Poet, the recipient of a King County 4Culture grant and a Jack Straw Fellow. Born in El Salvador she came to the United States in 1981. She has an MA in Urban Planning and an MFA in poetry. She is a certified K-12 teacher and has taught writing in the schools through Jack Straw. She writes because the flesh remembers even when the mind forgets and moving the hand across a page is a measure of resistance. Her poems have appeared in publications such as Riverbabble, the Taos Journal of Poetry and Art and City Arts among others. She is working on a memoir about her experience escaping the Salvadoran Civil War; an excerpt of it appears in the 2014 Jack Straw Writers Anthology. Living in English and Spanish, Claudia writes and teaches in Seattle where she gardens and keeps chickens with her husband and their three children.

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 accommodate 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.

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

Local Author Jack Lewis Reads ‘Head Check’ @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
Apr 30 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Author Jack Lewis Reads at Westwood Village Barnes & Noble Saturday, April 30 at 4 pm.

Local author Jack Lewis will be reading from his book ‘Head Check, What it Feels Like to Ride Motorcycles’ at the Westwood Village Barnes & Noble on Saturday, April 30 at 4 pm.

Head Check invites readers to take in the color and detail of a rider’s life vividly realized, richly observed, and transcendently described.

During his tenure at Motorcyclist magazine, Jack Lewis has touched readers around the world not only through his incandescent prose riffs and self-effacing humor, but also through a consistent and deeply felt humanity.

This collection of magazine features and columns alongside personally published web pieces and new material may be populated by motorcycles, but it centers around the varied experiences of riders (and their tolerant keepers) in a world where risk is a bet you make with yourself for purposes that must always transcend mere recreation.

More Information available at http://litsam.com/jack-lewis-returns-to-seattle/.

Death of a Salesman
by Arthur Miller

April 28 – May 29, 2016

Death of a Salesman tells the story of the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman, who cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness.

Sunday worship is at 8:00 and 10:15 am, with Christian Formation classes at 10:00 am. We invite you and all whom you love, to “Come as you are! Explore, Connect, and Share.” Check our website at: www.saintjohnonline.org or visit us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SJBWestSeattle.

*Journey Foursquare Church – is a warmly welcoming congregation of Jesus-followers who heed the words of St. Francis of Assisi “Preach the Gospel – using words only if necessary”. We feel the best expression of the compassion of Jesus is not by judging others, but by living His teachings by feeding the poor (we provide a weekly foodbank on Sunday nights), providing clothing for the naked, healing the sick (prayer & assistance) and preaching the good news of Jesus in the prisons & youth detention centers of King County. 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.

Death of a Salesman
by Arthur Miller

April 28 – May 29, 2016

Death of a Salesman tells the story of the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman, who cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the “American Dream” kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. A thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American theatre.

Words, Writers & West Seattle: Judy Bentley @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
May 6 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Local author, hiker, historian and professor, Judy Bentley, about her new book, ‘Walking Washington’s History: Ten Cities’ at Barnes & Noble (Westwood Village) for “Words, Writers & West Seattle” First-Friday Book Talk on May 6th, 2016. Her book features walks in ten cities in Washington State, narrating a period when the city was significant to the history of Washington. Her presentation will be supported by many “then and now” photographs from all ten cities, including an interactive “Can you guess which city?” part.

This free book-talk will be the 32nd installment of the monthly “Words, Writers & West Seattle” series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society. It will take place at 5 pm Friday, May 6th, 2016, at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

Walking Washington’s History: Ten Cities, a follow-up to Bentley’s bestselling Hiking Washington’s History, showcases the state’s engaging urban history through guided walks in ten major cities. Using narrated walks, maps, and historic photographs, Bentley reveals each city’s aspirations. She begins in Vancouver, established as a fur trade emporium on a plain above the Columbia River, and ends with Bellevue, a bedroom community turned edge city. In between, readers crisscross the state, with walks through urban Olympia, Walla Walla, Tacoma, Seattle, Everett, Bellingham, Yakima, and Spokane. Whether people pass through these cities as tourists or set out to explore their home terrain, they will discover both the visible and invisible markers of Washington history underfoot.

Judy Bentley writes hiking guides, history, and biography and is emeritus faculty at South Seattle College. She is the author of Hiking Washington’s History, and (with Lorraine McConaghy) Free Boy: A True Story of Slave and Master. Bentley has written 17 books, including hiking and walking guides to Washington State, biographies, and books for young adults on contemporary issues. She has also led history walks and bike rides for the Southwest Seattle Historical Society in Alki, Delridge, Pigeon Point, Riverside, and Me-Kwa-Mooks Park.

“Words, Writers & West Seattle’s” next First Friday book-talk is scheduled for June 3rd and will feature Lisa Richesson and her memoir, White Mother, Black Sons. For videos on these and other authors’ presentations, visit: www.loghousemuseum.info/events/words-writers-and-west-seattle.

Quirky Tales with Live Musical Accompaniment

Seattle author and jazz vocalist Katy Bourne reads from Weirdo Simpatico: Little Stories for Short Attention Spans as bassist Paul Gabrielson improvises a live musical backdrop. May 6 at Treehouse Lounge, 7-7:30 p.m. Purchase art supplies, then paint, clay, sketch and make your masterpiece while sipping a martini. Weirdo Simpatico~The Happy Hour Tour celebrating the weirdo in all of us. http://mindunwindart.com/treehouse-lounge (free) (206) 829-9128

More on Katy and WEIRDO SIMPATICO: LITTLE STORIES FOR SHORT ATTENTION SPANS
“She was a kooky dingdong who could schmooze with the best of them. She had a six-inch beehive and generous breasts. Her bright red lips and nails were ferocious, and she moved through the room with a decisive lady swagger. She was a killer. He’d let her do all the talking.” Each of Katy Bourne’s one-bite narratives ― from Roxanne refusing to friend her grandfather on Facebook to Gloria’s strained relations with the neighbor’s dog ― presents a snippet of a larger conundrum and reflects the idiosyncrasies of human nature. “I like to think of the stories as tiny pokes that give the reader a mental double-take and inspire further reflection as to the who, the what and the why,” says Bourne. “We all have our quirkier tendencies and unique ways of being in the world. I see Weirdo Simpatico as a microcosm of those tendencies.” The fifty stories in Weirdo are freakishly representative of the kinds of things that are running through Bourne’s mind at any time. “My brain is a perpetual circus of inane drivel, entertaining observations and ridiculous speculation. Our fellow inhabitants on this planet are an endless source of intrigue for me. I make up stories about people I see around me all the time. When I celebrate, I take everyone along with me. My hope is that Weirdo is an extension of that celebration.”

Katy Bourne is a self-described “basic goober making her way in the world.” A child of the southern plains, she grew up in Oklahoma throwing rocks, blowing saxophone in the school band and riding horses. The youngest of four, she was often left to her own devices and entertained herself by making faces in the bathroom mirror and dressing up the family pets. Having navigated numerous life challenges over the years, she is particularly interested in exploring themes of survival and grit, while exalting the quirks and foibles of humanity. Katy makes her home in Seattle. http://Katy-Bourne.com

Ronny Cox and friends perform @ Kenyon Hall
May 6 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

We’re delighted to welcome back the remarkable artist Ronny Cox to Kenyon Hall. Ronny has been featured in countless movies and television shows. Remembered best as the moral-minded and ill-fated Drew who instigates the legendary “Dueling Banjos” sequence with a mountain boy in Deliverance (1972), he was Captain Jellico in Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the bad guy in Robocop.

We can all name popular actors who play music as a sideline. Ronny Cox is not one of those actors. When you hear him sing the songs he’s written—deeply personal songs—you don’t think, “There’s an actor who also sings.” You forget that familiar face and focus on the poetry that lays his life bare, that draws his audience inexorably in, so that you feel what he’s feeling.

Ronny will be accompanied by Chip Dolan on piano and vocals, and T. Bruce Bowers on fiddle, mandolin and vocals. They’re exquisite ensemble players, and as a result, the trio has the feel of old friends who happen to be world-class musicians, playing the music they love.

Tickets for Ronny Cox and Friends are $20 general and $18 seniors and students. No table seats for this performance. For more information, please visit ronnycox.com.

To make a reservation, please e-mail kenyonhall@earthlink.net. You’ll receive an e-mail confirming your reservation.

Death of a Salesman

Afternoon book group @ Southwest Library
May 16 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Join us for an afternoon book group at the Southwest Library. This month’s title is “Animal Dreams” by Barbara Kingsolver.

Book Description: “Animals dream about the things they do in the daytime just like people do. If you want sweet dreams, you’ve got to live a sweet life.” So says Loyd Peregrina, a handsome Apache trainman and latter-day philosopher. But when Codi Noline returns to her hometown, Loyd’s advice is painfully out of her reach. Dreamless and at the end of her rope, Codi comes back to Grace, Arizona, to confront her past and face her ailing, distant father. What she finds is a town threatened by a silent environmental catastrophe, some startling clues to her own identity, and a man whose view of the world could change the course of her life.

Blending flashbacks, dreams, and Native American legends, Animal Dreams is a suspenseful love story and a moving exploration of life’s largest commitments.

Next Month’s Title: “The End of Your Life Book Club” by Will Schwalbe

Death of a Salesman
by Arthur Miller

Death of a Salesman tells the story of the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman, who cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness.

Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the “American Dream” kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. A thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American theatre.
