We are happy to announce the release of House Privilege, the newest Joe DeMarco thriller.   Mike will be here at the store to sign on Saturday, July 18th, from 3:00 to 4:00.  We’re hoping for weather nice enough to allow an outside event, complete, of course, with all the necessary 6 foot spacing and masks.  If it’s crummy enough to make us move inside, we’ll keep the doors open and allow people in a few at a time. 

If you prefer to avoid events but would like to get a book signed for you to pick up later or have sent, give us a call and we’ll arrange it.  And if you just want the book, it’s here now!

CAROL ANDERSON; on-line event hosted by SAL on SUNDAY, June 21, at 7:30 p.m.

We are proud to be the official bookseller for this event hosted by Seattle Arts and Lectures.  Carol Anderson is one of the leading scholars on black American history.  Her latest book, One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression is Destroying our Democracy, chronicles the rollbacks to African American participation in the vote since the 2013 Supreme Court decision that demolished the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  Stop by the bookstore to purchase a copy (or give us a call to have one sent), and then visit for digital tickets and more information.

SAL will be donating all Carol Anderson ticket sales from June 5th on to Black Lives Matter Seattle -King County, Shade Literary Arts, Creative Justice, and Fair Fight.






We are open, but if you still prefer to avoid others, just give us a call and we’ll charge you over the phone and deliver your books for free in the neighborhood, or help you arrange a quick pick-up at the store.

We continue to be amazed and grateful for the support of this community… thank you!
