  AAUW Seattle Branch Annual Meeting and Elections
with
Mary Ann Gwinn on “Closing One Book and Opening Others”

Best Western Plus Executive Inn
200 Taylor Ave North
Seattle, WA
Saturday, May 20 – 9:30am

Mary Ann Gwinn has been a book editor for the Seattle Times for 34 years and is retiring from deadlines, interviews, reviews, thrills, a lot of hard work and a little heartbreak.   You will still see her face and byline at the Times, and she will still be doing some writing for the Lit Life columns, but writing about books will go to her colleague Moira Macdonald. She will share with us, her experiences at the Seattle Times, her favorite interviews and, time permitting, her recommendations for Summer Reading.

May is also our Annual Meeting and we will be voting on candidates for President, VP Programs and Secretary.

Please join us!

Cost:  $15 inclusive – No Charge for Students with ID (Reservations Required)

Menu:   Pacific Northwest omelet with smoked salmon, asparagus and chive crème fraiche. Served with cheesy polenta cakes, freshly brewed coffee, decaffeinated coffee, and tea.

Parking:  Free in hotel garage.  Members who park in the BW garage or front lot can sign the book at the front desk and give their name and license plate number.  10-hour curbside pay stations on Taylor and on Thomas at $1.50 per hour; nearby lots $5-10/day.  Bus #8 on Denny.
