The Berger/Egan evening

I came down with a nasty flu bug over the weekend, but plan to be on my feet for tomorrow's (Wed., Feb. 25th) event at Town Hall at 7:30pm. 

Award-winning author and journalist Timothy Egan and I will be downstairs talking about Seattle, our Northwest roots and Pugetopolis.  The conversation will be moderated by David Brewster (the event is co-sponsored by Town Hall, Crosscut, and Seattle Weekly). The Seattle Channel will be taping for broadcast. Admission is $5. My book Pugetopolis will be on sale and I'd be happy to sign it for you. 

Tim kindly wrote the introduction. Talking about my Mossback column for the Weekly and Crosscut, he said: "I love the column, I told him some years ago, even though I disagree with half of what he writes." I'm hoping our Town Hall conversation will uncover a few of those areas of disagreement. But truth be told, I think a .500 batting average of agreement is pretty good.  To paraphrase Rudy Giuliani,  I don't even agree with me all the time.

FYI, you might want to get there early because Cliff Mass will be lecturing upstairs about Northwest weather, promoting his excellent new book on the topic so there's bound to be a crowd. Of course, in my humble opinion, Tim has already had the last work on our weather: The rain is good. But Cliff will fill in the details.
