Seattle Book Mob @ Secret Garden Books, May 19

A Book Mob is your chance to drop off your gently-used books for the Seattle7Writers pocket library program, which stocks bookshelves in homeless shelters, food banks, juvenile court waiting rooms, detention centers, and classrooms.  

While you're there, you can also buy a book at 20% off for an underfunded elementary classroom reading program, or buy a book for yourself from the well-stocked shelves of the local and independent Secret Garden Books.  

Local novelist Erica Bauermeister and children's author Clare Meeker will be on hand to take your books. Why?: Because everybody deserves the joy of a good book of their own.

Here's what we need:
picture andchildren's books
young adult
fiction and literary fiction
science fiction and fantasy
how-to (parenting and self-help)

What we do NOT need:
travel guides
computer/software manuals
coffee table picture books
massive histories of the Crimean war (etc)
Reader's Digest condensed books
Interior decorating and lifestyle
