At the Southwest Branch library, Words, Writers, and Southwest Stories presents Susanna Ryan, author of the Seattle Walk Report. Her book features comic book- style illustrations that celebrate the distinctive and odd people, places, and things that define Seattle’s neighborhoods. The book goes deep into the urban jungle, exploring popular Seattle neighborhoods, pulling out history, notable landmarks, and curiosities that make each area so distinctive.
Susanna Ryan is a self-taught cartoonist and author of the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association’s bestselling book, Seattle Walk Report: An Illustrated Walking Tour through 23 Seattle Neighborhoods. After discovering a love for exploring Seattle by foot, Susanna started the Instagram comic series Seattle Walk Report in 2017, which now has over 17,000 followers. With her keen eye for Seattle’s overlooked landmarks and everyday transitory material, she captures everything that makes the Emerald City magical. When she’s not taking long walks or making comics about them, you can find her working for the Seattle Public Library.
