QLAW FOUNDATION'S 3RD ANNUAL FALLTACULAR A GREAT SUCCESS!
On Thursday, October 16, QLaw, the GLBT Bar Association of Washington, hosted a fundraising social at the Greg Kucera Gallery. Attended by over 100 members and supporters, the event raised $7,500 to support the law student Public Interest Summer Grant program and other QLaw Foundation activities, including the beginnings of a new LGBTQ legal clinic. The crowd heard from Sarah White, a student at the University of Washington School of Law, whose work at the Northwest Women's Law Center last summer was made possible by a QLaw Foundation grant. Sensible Shoes, an ensemble of the Seattle Women's Chorus, entertained the crowd with a sonorous set of melodies, including a witty take on Lesbian dating patterns that proved popular with the family law lawyers in attendance. QLaw Foundation President Beth Barrett Bloom closed the evening's program with a call for volunteers and donations to support the Foundation's mission as a bridge between the legal profession and LGBT community. www.q-law.org

RICHARD HUGO HOUSE LITERARY SERIES PRESENTS "ROAD TRIP"
On Friday, October 24, at 7:30 p.m., Richard Hugo House, 1634 11th Ave., presents "Road Trip," the first event of their 2008-2009 Hugo Literary Series, featuring new writing from Aimee Bender, Matt Ruff and Marie Howe and new songs by singer/songwriter Laurie Katherine Carlsson. "The road trip is a peculiarly American trope," says program director Alix Wilber. "Our economy, our culture - perhaps even our national identity - has grown up around the symbols of the car and the open road. So we thought it would be interesting to turn an idea that teeters on the edge of cliché over to three writers who are known for their spectacular originality and see what they make of it." Series passes are $50-$80; single tickets are $15-$25. www.brownpapertickets.com. Details at www.hugohouse.org or call 206-322-7030.
