For the 2018–19 season of Hugo Literary Series — the first in our new home — we’re looking back to look forward and asking the writers and musicians to create new things from the old.

Each event within the series takes its theme from an iconic book — those whose titles have a resonance beyond the book itself.

Award-winning fiction writer Benjamin Percy (Red Moon, The Wilding); author and journalist Vanessa Hua, whose novel, A River of Stars, was named to the Washington Post and NPR’s “Best Books of 2018” lists; and well-known local poet Keetje Kuipers, will read new work on the theme The Metamorphosis, inspired by the title of Franz Kafka’s much-loved absurdist novella.

Space-age singer-songwriter SassyBlack — who has been featured by KEXP, Pitchfork, Afropunk, and others — will perform new songs to the same theme.
