occult-esotericists-ceremonial-magickians, if you aren't busy the weekend of the , you might consider Mortlake & Co's Texts & Traditions Colloquium, held inside one of Seattle's oldest Masonic lodges. Bookfair is free (not counting your shopping) and lecture series can be ticketed for single days or whole weekend.
