Seismic: Seattle, City of Literature

Seismic: Seattle, City of Literature Book Cover

Edited by Kristen Millares Young

Seattle was designated a UNESCO City of Literature in 2017 and has been working as part of the international network since then. Seismic is a collection that asks writers to consider what the designation means for our city and how literature might be an agent of change.

This collection, a living portrait that recognizes Seattle’s designation as a UNESCO City of Literature, was made possible with the support of Seattle City of Literature, The Seattle Public Library Foundation, Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, the Amazon Literary Partnership, The Seattle Public Library, and the Gary and Connie Kunis Foundation.
