The KCTS 9 Book Club is a virtual* conversation event series, in collaboration with Third Place Books in Seattle and PBS Books.

Monthly book selections are made by a rotating group of Washington authors who will also host the virtual discussions. The twist: authors select books that aren't their own! Most months, books selected are fiction, but we may change it up once every so often. Themes correspond to current programming airing on KCTS 9.

Our March theme is "Women’s Experiences" and we'll be reading The Golden State by Lydia Kiesling. Angela Garbes will be the facilitator. The book selection complements these programs on KCTS 9:

  • Beyond the Canvas: Women of Wonder on March 18 at 10:30 pm
  • Call the Midwife Season 11 Premiere on March 20 at 8 pm
