Hedgebrook’s annual fundraiser always features great conversation, and is a chance to meet and chat with a variety of types of writers (including screenwriters and songwriters) who have been supported by this writers’ retreat for women. This year’s speakers are playwright Sarah Ruhl and historian Annette Gordon-Reed (The Hemingses of Monticello), but every table includes writers who are also Hedgebrook alums. Elliott Bay will be on hand with books by many of the writers in attendance. A great morning, a great cause. Click below for tickets ($150, including brunch) and more information.
