Bailey Coy Books Wake & Auction
Bailey Coy Books Wake & Auction: Celebrating 26 years as Capitol Hill's literary hub, providing the community with a place to be amongst books, talk about literature and meet their favorite authors.
On Thursday, December 3, we're holding a wake for the bookstore, in memory of all those years, and celebrating the customers who've walked through the doors, the authors we've hosted, the generations of books we've sold and the staff who have served us so well.
We'll also hold an auction of the memorabilia we've collected over the years. We want to say goodbye in style and raise some cash to help the store.
Auctioneer Laura Michalek will oversee bidding on a pair of white boxer shorts signed by David Sedaris, original cartoons out of our guestbook by Matt Groening and Lynda Barry, a poster signed by Annie Leibovitz, an original painting from the Big Fucking Hands series by Ellen Forney, signed first editions and other very special and very odd items. We'll also auction off dates with two of Capitol Hill's celebrity politicians, State Senator Ed Murray and City Councilmember Sally Clark.
Entertainment will be provided by Fuschia Foxxx and the magnificent Dina Martina. Food and champagne will be served, all provided by local Capitol Hill eateries such as Poppy, Table 219, Charlie's and High Five Pies. We will pop the champagne open at 6 pm--the entertainment, and the auction, will begin promptly at 7.
Celebrate the end of an institution.
