Book Launch at Elliot Bay Book Co.

April 27, 2023 | 7pm | Elliot Bay Book Co | TICKETS

Photographer Matika Wilbur debuts her long-awaited Project 562: Changing the Way we See Native America, a photographic and narrative celebration of contemporary Native American life and cultures that focuses the lens on the 562 federally recognized Native American Tribal Nations. We’re asking all singers and dancers to join us at Elliott Bay (or at any of the stops)– we are hoping to indigenize all those books and bring all the good medicine and joy together. 

 We expect a large turnout for this one and plan to hold it upstairs rather than in the Readings Room. Please RSVP for the free event here to help us prepare.
