The Peninsula Network will meet up at The Pourhouse in Port Townsend for Kid Lit Drink Night on October 25 6pm, and November 15 6pm. 

Kid Lit Drink Night! Or introvert happy hour. Or whatever you want to call it. Our advisory committee is taking turns "hosting" Kid Lit Drink Nights across our chapter. The first of the season will be in Issaquah on October 26th! Brave the rain and lift a glass with creative comrades.
