Though Elliott Bay and University Book Store undoubtedly host more visiting authors, Seattle Arts & Lectures lands the heavyweights. It's a premium ticket to see guests like Jennifer Egan, Dennis Lehane, and Khaled Hosseini (all coming next season)—more if you want to mingle at the reception. But it's also worth it. The Benaroya Hall gatherings are a little more formal upscale than those at Town Hall or other literary venues; still, wouldn't you rather be dressed up to meet Jonathan Franzen or Joyce Carol Oates? Save the Tevas-with-socks for another occasion. BRIAN MILLER 105 S. Main St. # 201, lectures.org
