Local Birder, Connie Sidles, Celebrating New Book Thursday Evening At Center For Urban Horticulture

Connie Sidles, a local birding expert who maintains a blog documenting the many types of birds, including beautiful pictures, at the nearby Union Bay Natural Area, also known as the Montlake Fill, is having a special event on Thursday evening to celebrate the publication of her newest book, "Forty-Six Views of Montlake Fill."
The book is filled with poems, written by Connie, and illustrated by one of North America's best sumi artists, Hiroko Seki.

Connie told us about the event which goes from 6:30pm-8:30pm at the Center for Urban Horticulture:
There will be poetry reading, free food and wine, and Hiroko is going to give a sumi demonstration. What we have in mind to do is, as I read a poem, she will paint a sumi illustration, and we'll both finish together. It should be a lot of fun.
