About the Event

Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum invites you to the Second Folio Dinner, an evening of conversation over great food (from Bizzarro Italian Cafe) and great wine (from Avennia) upstairs in the heart of the Pike Place Market. Each Folio Dinner is convened around one big table and one big question. For the Second Folio Dinner, the big question is:

“What is funny?”

Laughter is a gift, and some people are just very good at giving it. Join Teatro ZinZanni founder Norm Langill, Kyogen actor Jane Corddry Langill, Art Zone’s Nancy Guppy, and good-at-everything-funny Joe Guppy in exploring why we can’t help laughing sometimes, and what it takes to get us there.

The Folio Dinners are exceptionally enjoyable fundraisers, wherein a small number of people (no more than 20) come together over food, wine, and conversation, and in so doing help Folio fulfill our mission of fostering long-form thinking in a short-form world. Our goal for each dinner is to raise $10,000. Seats at the table are priced accordingly. Join us!

Special thanks to series sponsor Avennia for the remarkable wines we enjoy at every Folio Dinner.
