When we last mentioned Seattle’s bid for official UNESCO designation as a City of Literature, in February 2014, there were seven such cities and Seattle’s effort was earnest and grassroots. Still earnest, the project now has a new advisory board, a new presence on social media, a new video, and a book by Ryan Boudinot, Seattle City of Literature, scheduled for release this fall by Sasquatch Books.
More on the Seattle City of Literature website and on Facebook as Seattle waits to see if it will be selected as number 12 — a particularly auspicious designation, for which the city seems exceedingly well primed.
