The Ballard Library will soon host a holiday-themed Northwest Youth Harp Ensemble concert, happening on Saturday, Dec. 8.
The harp students, under the direction of Ballard harpist Susi Hussong, will be playing holiday favorites from around the world. In addition to the harp players, there will be accompanying violin, cello, flute, bells, drums and singing. The concert will be held from 2pm to 3pm, and is free and open to the public.
The Ballard branch’s monthly reading series and poetry “potluck” is also coming up soon — here’s more information from the library:
It’s About Time Writers’ Reading Series – 6 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13 A monthly series featuring author readings and open mics. The 350th meeting features readings from Benjamin Schmitt, Roberta Feins and Carol P. Holding. Christian Downes will give a short lecture on the writer’s craft.
