A stiff neck after a fender bender, spilled hot coffee in a fast food restaurant, a bad fall on an icy sidewalk: it takes so little for a bad day to turn into the opportunity to litigate. But what about the injuries we nurse elsewhere, the hurts to our hearts, our aspirations, our dignity the wounds inflicted by others, the ones we wreak on ourselves?
The Hugo Literary Series continues with "Personal Injury" on Friday, November 21, 7:30 p.m. at Richard Hugo House, featuring new writing from author Ryan Boudinot, social critic Richard Rodriguez and confessional essayist Sallie Tisdale with new songs by folk rocker Laura Veirs.
Individual tickets for "Personal Injury" include admission to the Saturday programming, "Sticks, Stones... and Words," a discussion of personal injury in literature with Ryan Boudinot, facilitated by Seattle magazine arts and culture editor Brangien Davis.
Classes with Richard Rodriguez and Sallie Tisdale are not included with the cost of the ticket; a separate registration and fee are required. To register, call (206) 322-7030
