UWAA Night at Seattle Arts & Lectures

Tues. Feb. 15, 2022      6:30–7:30 p.m.

Benaroya Hall, 200 University Street, Seattle, WA 98101

Celebrated author Charles Yu (HBO’s “Westworld;” “How to Live Safely in a Science Fiction Universe”) will be speaking at Seattle Arts & Lectures! Join Connie So, UW American Ethnic Studies teaching professor, for a hosted reception before the main event. SAL’s lecture, moderated by UW’s Shawn Wong, will begin at 7:30 p.m. The UW Alumni Book Club has been reading Yu’s award-winning novel, “Interior Chinatown.” This is a great chance to chat with your fellow Huskies about the book — and about issues of cultural stereotypes in popular media in general.

Tickets are $5, and include admission to the reception and a reserved lecture seat.

Participants should be prepared to present proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test result per UW and King County guidelines. See full details below. Masks required for all attendees.
