Seattle holds a different story for every one of us. To explore the complicated and multifaceted history of this city, the MOHAI Youth Advisors are launching a book club and kicking it off with an art and writing competition for youth in the Seattle area.
We invite you to browse, read, and contemplate the themes in the list of books provided. Then you write YOUR Seattle story and submit it by September 9 to be considered for the BookMarked Seattle zine.
