YES! Magazine's 2nd Annual Celebration of People Power

With Alice Walker, Frances Moore Lappé, and Makana

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Pulitzer Prize-winner Alice Walker (The Color Purple, The Chicken Chronicles) and bestselling author Frances Moore Lappé (Diet for a Small Planet, EcoMind), speak to our power as change makers, interwoven with inspiring music from Makana, the acclaimed Hawaiian songwriter and slack-key guitarist who made national news last fall when he performed his Occupy anthem, “We Are the Many,” for President Obama.

When: Wednesday, June 6, at 7:00pm (doors open at 6:00pm, general seating. Drinks will be available for sale.)

Where: Town Hall Seattle, 1119 8th Ave (at 8th & Seneca. Convention Center parking is $4 when validated by Town Hall.)

What to expect: A full house, with over 800 members of a vibrant cross section of the Seattle community. A dessert reception will follow in the lobby, with live music from Makana, book signing, and locally-sourced refreshments. All proceeds from this evening will benefit the nonprofit YES! Magazine. Donations made that night will be matched, and are tax-deductible.
