Two Writers Meet

Anthony Washington

Anthiney and Knute

Mr. Berger writes the monthly Grey Matters column for Seattle magazine and is a weekly Friday guest on Weekday on KUOW-FM (94.9). His newest book is Pugetopolis: A Mossback Takes On Growth Addicts, Weather Wimps, and the Myth of Seattle Nice,.In 2011, he was named Writer-in-Residence at the Space Needle and is author of Space Needle, The Spirit of Seattle (2012), the official 50th anniversary history of the tower.

Knute is one of Seattle’s leading historian/writers, so I’m excited to meet up with him as I move forward with a few writing projects I’m working on.

As for the speaker, David Brewster posted this on FB:

Carver Clark Graver brewsterGayton talked movingly about his great grandfather, Lewis Clarke, at a Folio event last night. Clarke was an escaped slave who became a key figure in anti-slavery politics and the source of much of “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” Gayton also talked some about the current state of race relations, how we get so close to progress only to fall back to mistrust. Blacks and whites need to talk more, befriend more, be more honest, and share more power, he said. But white Seattleites find it hard to be open and honest, an audience member said. “So do we!” Gayton admitted.
