3rd Annual Seattle Book Summit presented by PR for People
On Thursday, August 1st, I had the wonderful experience of photographing at the Seattle Book Summit presented by PR for People. The Seattle Book Summit was held at the beautiful Seattle Public Library this year and the keynote speakers were comedian and author, Wali Collins, designer and brand strategist, Tim Girvin, and poet Lauri Conner. Each of the speakers enthralled the audience and brought years of experience to share. Wali Collins acted as emcee for the event, starting and ending the day with great comedic routines while Tim Girvin spoke on “The Human Brand” and Lauri Conner shared with us her views on the power of the written word. Additional event speakers Kelsye Nelson, CEO and Co-Founder of Writer.ly, and Attorney Claire Hawkins also contributed. Speakers were broken up with three sessions each geared toward helping further the audience’s knowledge of the writing world and how to succeed in it.
I enjoyed attending this event and was able to capture some treasured moments shared between event attendees, speakers, and panelists alike. I especially enjoyed the reception at the end of the day because it offered everyone an opportunity to freely discuss the information we had learned. It also gave some beautiful photo-op moments that I was able to capture as you can see. Overall the Seattle Book Summit was a gratifying experience and I look forward to attending again next year.
