How did Seattle become home to some of the world's most influential infectious-diseases researchers?

Hot Spot tells the story of young physician-scientists drawn to the "off you go" spirit of the Pacific Northwest. A University of Washington researcher discovered scores of new sexually transmitted pathogens and created a widely copied "Seattle model" to treat and prevent them. Another led clinical trials for the world's first antiviral therapy. Others found ways to protect immune-weakened patients from deadly infections after a bone marrow transplant.

Such innovations put Seattle at the forefront of both the HIV/AIDS pandemic and the new field of global health. When COVID-19 emerged, Seattle was ready.

The Inaugural Santa Fe Literary Festival was a huge success!

Collected Works was very proud to have been on-site all weekend as the official bookstore of the Santa Fe Festival. Bestselling, prizewinning authors and literary legends like Margaret Atwood, Joy Harjo, Colson Whitehead, Sandra Cisneros, Jon Krakauer, amongst others, spent time in our mini-bookstore in the lobby of the Convention Center and signed hundreds of books, which we now have in stock. So if you missed the festival but are looking for a signed copy of one of their books, please call us or come in to browse.
