Town Hall’s history of spirited community gatherings took a new form when we invited Kate Lebo and Samuel Ligon to share their new anthology, Pie & Whiskey: Writers under the Influence of Butter & Booze. The book is a collection of six years’ worth of literary work plus newly generated pieces, all from prompts that involve pie, whiskey, or both—from writers like Jess Walter, J Robert Lennon, Kim Barnes, and ML Smoker. Congregating with several of their contributing authors, Lebo and Ligon gathered us for a night of lively readings from their compendium—complete with enough whiskey and pie to turn the night into a true reading party. Listen to a night under the influence of baked goods and spirits, and the stories they can inspire.
Readers include Tod Marshall, Elizabeth Colen, Robert Lashley, Jess Walter, Kristen Young, Gary Lilley, Shawn Vestal, Kim Addonizio, Angela Garbes, Anastacia Renee Tolbert, Margot Kahn, as well as co-editors Kate Lebo and Samuel Ligon.
Presented By: Town Hall Seattle, Sasquatch Books, CityArts, and Dry Fly Distilling. Special thanks to Don Poffenroth and Dry Fly Distillery for sponsoring this event.
Recorded live at Washington Hall Wednesday, November 15, 2017.
