Upcoming Thrilling Tales from our Story Time for Grown Ups.

For over a decade, every other Monday at noon listeners have flocked to Thrilling Tales, the Library’s story time for grownups, spending their lunch hour rapt in suspenseful narratives. Janice Leadingham, a local bookseller said in a recent article in City Arts: “Especially for impatient people, it’s good because it slows things down a bit. For one hour, you can just be.” In a recent front page article in The Seattle Times, audience member Zachary Valenter said of Thrilling Tales emcee David Wright, “He’s one of the best storytellers I’ve ever listened to. We come every week that he does the show.”

Monday, Feb. 22, 2016. Downtown reader services librarian, David Wright reading the short story, People Don’t do Such Things by Ruth Rendell during the “A Story Time for Grownups” at the Seattle downtown public library.

Find out what all the fuss is about: drop by the Central Library at five minutes past noon on any of the following days, and remember just how fun it was to sit back, relax and be read to.

Page To Screen In the Bedroom2This Saturday at 1 p.m. we also have the last of six Page To Screen presentations, which pairs short stories with the films based on them. This week’s presentation is Killings, by Andre Dubus, a powerful and moving story of violence and its impact on one family that was brilliantly adapted into an award-winning film In The Bedroom, starring  Marissa Tomei, Sissy Spacek and Tom Wilkinson. Guns change everything, forever.
