CD History in Elliot Bay Tonight

From Phyllis Fletcher: Unbeknownst to me in 1986, a boys’ basketball team in Seattle, mixed race-wise and class-wise by design, had one glorious championship season on the regional circuit. The boys were my age and included some of my classmates from Washington Middle School. Now, for the past month, a group of Seattle bus riders has been reading a book that documents the team and the “whatever happened to” stories of the teammates. Tonight I have the privilege of moderating a discussion among the readers and and three of the team members–one of whom authored the award-winning book, _The Hustle_. Free, open to all, tonight, 7PM. CC Garfieldclass Nineteenninety: the book chronicles the life and untimely death of Tyrell Johnson, whom we have honored at reunions as a classmate; the author dedicated the book in his memory. — with Carla Saulter and Doug Merlino at Elliott Bay Book Company.
