Music! Storytelling! Poetry! Comedy! Acting! Photography! Portait illustration! 

It's time for another FrizzLit variety show. Category is: the sea. Or: whales. Or: the color blue. 

Come experience new creations by 12 brilliant artists. The idea is to give these artists a deadline — in this case, Herman Melville's birthday — and a venue. One night only!

You will be the first person to listen to these pieces of writing, hear these new musical compositions and one-of-a-kind covers, feast your eyes on new works of photography, experience a new short work of theater, and — if you want — go home with Kathryn Rathke posters of your favorite dead writers.

Most importantly, you'll get to hang out with your FrizzLit friends at the height of summer, when Seattle is at its most beautiful.
