That's a whole lotta awesome, and when you put it all together, you get Writers in the Schools, one of the coolest things goin' in this here fine city. WITS is one of our most favorite things ever, and they're ending another school year with two nights of awesome at the Central Library with their Student Reading & Celebration. We love it so much, we gave 'em a bunch of free babycakes.

WITS sends writers out into Seattle Public Schools (in case you were confused by their name) to literally teach kids how to use their words. Turns out, when you give young people access to creative outlets, the results will blow your mind. Come and get your mind blown tonight and tomorrow night as students read the work they've produced over the past school year with the help of WITS.
Central Library (the big shiny one down town)
6/3 (TONIGHT) Elementary & Junior High students read their work
