scblackman and I are going to meet for coffee before the Slate Live Book Club event for Slaughterhouse Five, somewhere near the event venue, Town Hall in downtown Seattle. Join us!
Tickets and Event Info

"Please join Slate as we present our popular podcast the Audio Book Club for a live episode taping at Town Hall Seattle!
Host Dan Kois, editor of the Slate Book Review, will be joined by Slate's Hanna Rosin, as well as special guest Hugh Howey, author of the bestselling Wool series, for a freewheeling discussion of Kurt Vonnegut's classic Slaughterhouse-five - plus genre and literature, growth of fan fiction, and the joy of playing in the Vonnegut universe."

I work only a few blocks from Town Hall, but my workplace provides adequate free coffee so I am not up to speed on the area's better coffee shops, and what I see on Google Maps is not overwhelmingly inspiring. If no one has suggested a venue in a week or so, I'll nominate one that I can see.

Perhaps a 6:15 meeting time would give us time to enjoy our coffee and get to know each other and arrive at the event in style, assuming that we're within a five minute walk of the venue? Open to suggestion on this point. I've been known to be chronically early.

scblackman may be able to educate us about the bombing of Dresden.

Is this an off-site of AWP?

I didn't know what AWP was but Google suggests that it is probably this? and to my knowledge it is not an off-site of that. I'm pretty sure it is just a standalone Slate event.
