Book-It's Guilty Pleasures January 19



Guilty Pleasures are campy, trampy send-ups of everything from classic literature to pulp fiction — all the books you’ll never admit you read. Our one-night-only party includes a rad raffle and grown-up goodies galore, including “adult goodie bags” provided by Babeland.

Sponsored in part by

Upgrade your tickets by adding on a sponsorship and receive VIP treatment. You’ll get front-row reserved seating, four drink tickets, and four entries to Booty Island – a private reading performed by a certain “seafaring man with one leg.”

Note: Limited availability. Tickets will NOT be sold at the door.


Arts & Education fundraising Luncheon

Bringing Books to Life Fundraising Luncheon

Thank you for your support at our annual Bringing Books to Life Fundraiser on October 28, 2016. More than 125 people helped us raise $35,000 to support the 9th grade residency program at Chief Sealth High School and the upcoming productions of Goin’ Someplace Special and El Deafo. Last year, with your help, we reached 55,000 students and educators throughout Washington State with Book-It’s arts and education programming. We are grateful for your support of our literacy work in schools.
