Event Details

For the second year in a row, Bedtime Stories returns to Spokane for an illuminating evening of food, wine and words. This year’s event takes place Sept. 20, so save the date!

Bedtime Stories features celebrated Northwest authors who pen original short works inspired by the evening's theme and read them aloud while guests enjoy a delicious multi-course dinner and great wine.  Without fail, the stories enchant, surprise, and entertain, all while inspiring conversation and critical thinking - the core of Humanities Washington's mission.

Critically acclaimed Northwest authors will debut original short works inspired by this year's event theme, Pillow Talk.. This year’s writers include Jess Walter, Kathleen Flenniken, Sharma Shields, and Shawn Vestal, with emcee Gary Stokes.

Bedtime Stories is a fundraiser supporting Humanities Washington’s efforts to spark conversation and critical thinking, nurturing thoughtful and engaged communities across our state.We are especially excited to bring this event back to Spokane after our inaugural event in 2012 was such a success, raising over $35,000 for Humanities Washington’s programs. Our work — from family reading programs to traveling exhibits — brings high-quality cultural programs to Spokane and the state.
