Ink auctioning off notable local books

Ink Art Space, a new program aimed at teaching children the arts, is hosting a fundraiser Friday. The Light Up the Sign Happy Hour from 5 to 8 p.m. will feature hors d’oeuvres and drinks, as well as a silent auction. Among the prizes in the auction are artworks, a day on the set of the SyFy series “Z Nation” currently shooting in Spokane, and a selection of books by Spokane-area authors, all autographed and curated by Ink board president Jess Walter.

Among the more than 50 titles – including some first and special editions – in the collection are works by Timothy Egan, Sherman Alexie, Chris Crutcher, Terry Trueman, Natalie Kusz, Shawn Vestal, Samuel Ligon and Walter.

The evening will feature beer from River City Brewing and wine from Townshend Cellar.

Ink is located at 228 W. Sprague Ave., in downtown. Admission is free. For information, visit Ink’s Facebook page or here.
