The Revolutionists

By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Kelly Kitchens

A quartet of fierce women —Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle—lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. As this fearless comedy unfolds, The Revolutionists rewrites the book on legacy, art and activism, feminism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we go about changing the world.

Jan 16 – Feb 9, 2020
Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

“…a sassy, hold-on-to-your-seats theatrical adventure…Listen closely, though, and hang on tight. If you do, you’ll be treated to an invigorating and enlightening journey.” —Cincinnati Enquirer

“…in this sparkling work, politics is very, very funny …These are hilarious and lovable women trapped in a history with a somber final act.” — Houston Chronicle

Jan 20 @ 2:00 pm – 7:00 pm

At the Delridge Library:

The Seattle Public Library, AARP, and the United Way of King County are working together to offer free tax help at 11 Library locations through mid-April. Trained volunteers can answer questions and prepare personal tax returns.

This service is free and available to individuals. Reservations are not required. The free service is not available for business tax returns.

Due to federal budget cuts the IRS is unable to provide the Library with certain tax forms and instruction booklets. Most IRS forms are available online at www.irs.gov. You may make black-and-white prints of the forms from Library computers for $.15 per page.

Drop-in tax help is offered on a first come, first served basis. Please arrive early enough to ensure that we have time to help you.

Required Documents
To receive tax help, bring the following documents:
• Photo identification (required)
• Social Security cards for everyone listed on the tax return Tax form SSA 1099 (Social Security benefits)
• Medicare card (if Social Security number is followed by an “A”)
• Official documents on Social Security Administration letterhead
• Last year’s tax return, if available
• All tax-related documents, such as W-2s and 1099s. Be prepared to provide information about health care coverage for each person on the return.

Note: Photocopies or computer print-outs of any these documents will not be accepted.

We can provide accommodations for people with disabilities at Library events. Please contact leap@spl.org at least seven days before the event to request accommodations.

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.

Highland Park Improvement Club (HPIC) presents a special screening of Promised Land, a social justice documentary on the Duwamish and Chinook tribes, their fight for restoration, and the federal recognition process’s stance toward indigenous sovereignty today.

Doors open at 7PM for appetizers, drinks, and socializing, with the film starting at 8PM. A representative from the Duwamish Tribe and also the filmmaker will be in attendance to introduce the film and to lead discussion afterward.

$10 donation at the door, half of which will be given toward the Tribes’ fight for restoration and recognition.

From the filmmakers:

Promised Land is an award-winning social justice documentary that follows two tribes in the Pacific Northwest: the Duwamish and the Chinook, as they fight for the restoration of treaty rights they’ve long been denied. In following their story, the film examines a larger problem in the way that the government and society still looks at tribal sovereignty.

Australia bushfire fundraiser @ Arthur’s

As we are an Australian influenced establishment (named after my Australian father Arthur!) we really wanted to take some action concerning the bushfires that have devastated Arthur’s homeland.

Additionally, it happens to be Australia day on the 26th (technically on the same day as Aus is 17 or so hours ahead of us…) so we’re hosting our annual Australia Day wine dinner. Proceeds from this will as well be donated and seats are still available.

Lastly, if folks would like to donate directly we’ll gather any donations to add to the total we’re looking to raise.

Storytelling is a core routine at VWP’s nature-immersion programs. Their staff practice oral traditions to inspire the children and instill valuable lessons in wilderness survival, naturalist skills, and community building. VWP students also practice sharing their own stories, both to help deepen their learning journeys and to discover their authentic voices.

Audience members of all ages are invited to bring a prepared 5-minute story, spin a tale in the One-Minute Story-thon, or join the fun, interactive group storytelling improv games.

The Storytelling Festival is best suited for ages 4 and older. Guests are encouraged to arrive early to purchase snacks and sign up for a tellers’ spot.

VWP (a 501c3 non-profit) provides nature immersion programs for people for all ages from Vashon and surrounding Puget Sound communities. To date, VWP has helped nearly 4,500 children, teens, adults, and families connect deeply with themselves, each other, and nature through their transformative nature mentoring programs, camps, workshops, and trainings.

These two ensembles have performed extensively throughout the Northwest, but this collaboration—an all-gospel show— is a first.

Kathy Kallick’s exceptional career includes winning a Grammy and two IBMA Awards, receiving a Lifetime Membership from the California Bluegrass Association, co-founding the internationally-acclaimed Good Ol’ Persons, and collaborating with the country’s top acoustic musicians, including her mighty current band Annie Staninec (fiddle), Greg Booth (dobro, banjo), Tom Bekeny (mandolin), and Cary Black (acoustic bass), all of whom provide sterling harmony vocals.

Cliff Perry and Laurel Bliss began as a singing due more than thirty years ago, and are now recognized as the most important contemporary interpreters of the songs of the Carter Family. Together they formed the heart of Southfork, a legendary Northwest bluegrass band, and they continue to sing with the compelling sincerity of classic country music, playing soulful dobro and guitar that support their powerful vocals.

This service is free and available to individuals. Reservations are not required. The free service is not available for business tax returns.

Due to federal budget cuts the IRS is unable to provide the Library with certain tax forms and instruction booklets. Most IRS forms are available online at www.irs.gov. You may make black-and-white prints of the forms from Library computers for $.15 per page.

Drop-in tax help is offered on a first come, first served basis. Please arrive early enough to ensure that we have time to help you.

Required Documents
To receive tax help, bring the following documents:
• Photo identification (required)
• Social Security cards for everyone listed on the tax return Tax form SSA 1099 (Social Security benefits)
• Medicare card (if Social Security number is followed by an “A”)
• Official documents on Social Security Administration letterhead
• Last year’s tax return, if available
• All tax-related documents, such as W-2s and 1099s. Be prepared to provide information about health care coverage for each person on the return.

Note: Photocopies or computer print-outs of any these documents will not be accepted.

We can provide accommodations for people with disabilities at Library events. Please contact leap@spl.org at least seven days before the event to request accommodations.

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.

The KonMari Method of Decluttering and Organizing your Home @ The Kenny
Jan 29 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Spring is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning. It’s also the perfect time to start tidying your house. Tidying first means you won’t get stuck cleaning things that do not spark joy. Tidying also means it will be easier to clean when your house is already in order. Find out how KonMari Tidying can be part of your spring-cleaning marathon.

This interactive workshop will provide you with  the tools and knowledge to successfully transform your home using the KonMari Method. The event includes an overview of the KonMari Method™ including a live demonstration of the KonMari folding technique and the distribution of take-home materials for reference that will prepare you to  get your home tidy now!  

This method of tidying can change your life!

The Pacific Northwest’s first certified KonMari Tidying Consultant, Sue Bollinger, of Tidy Up With Sue, will share home organization tips that focus on what to keep (Does it “spark joy?”) rather than what to discard. Learn about the revolutionary Japanese decluttering method made popular by Marie Kondo’s bestsellers, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Spark Joy, and the Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A period.  All are welcome!

Space is limited, so please RSVP today at (206) 937-2800.
