Rap/Hip Hop
$uicideboy$
The rap duo consists of cousins from New Orleans, described by one fan on the Web as "maniacal, lo-fi weirdos [who] have been creating futuristic glitch trap with enough bass to kickstart the apocalypse." Their notoriety, such as it is, stems from graphic descriptions of drug use and violence in their lyrics.

Signing/Readings
1968: The Year That Rocked Washington
Join us as we welcome John C. Hughes, Bob Young & Lori Larson to Browsers in support of their new book, 1968: The Year That Rocked Washington published by Legacy Washington. About the Book: 1968: The Year That Rocked Washington is the latest compilation of stories from Legacy Washington. This compelling book spotlights Washingtonians whose lives reflected the unsettling problems and soaring ideals of the 1960s Change was in the air. Everywhere. From Saigon to Seattle, Paris to Pasco. On college campuses, the campaign trail and evergreen peaks, Washingtonians were spurred to action. It was the year when Vietnam, civil rights, women’s liberation and conservation coalesced — the year when tragedy led the 6 o’clock news with numbing regularity. Nearly 50 million Baby Boomers were coming of age. The draft call for 1968 was 302,000, up 72,000 from the prior year. These people may have had differing politics and goals. But they had one thing in common: The courage of their convictions. And their stories show the power of a committed individual to make a difference.” Secretary of State, Kim Wyman. About the Authors: John C. Hughes is the chief historian for the Office of the Secretary of State. He retired as editor and publisher of The Daily World in Aberdeen in 2008 after a 42-year career in journalism that saw him win awards for reporting, photography, historical features, editorials and columns. An alumnus of the University of Puget Sound and the University of Maryland, he is a trustee of the Washington State Historical Society. Hughes is the author of 11 books on Northwest history, including On the Harbor: From Black Friday to Nirvana; Booth Who?, a biography of Governor Booth Gardner; Slade Gorton, A Half Century in Politics; Lillian Walker, Washington State Civil Rights Pioneer; Governor John Spellman: Politics Never Broke His Heart; Pressing On, the story of the family-owned Seattle Times and Wenatchee World.
