Seattle’s cultural institutions are not immune to Super Bowl fever.
We already reported on the wager between Seattle Art Museum and Denver Art Museum (which morphed into a bit of a controversy). And yesterday, we noticed a video circulating on social media that shows the Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra and Denver Philharmonic Orchestra facing off in a “Super Bow.” (See the video at the bottom of this post.)
Today, we see that Seattle Public Library and Denver Public Library are competing in a Reading Bowl, to determine which city reads more.
Here are the details, directly from SPL’s website:
“Since Monday evening, readers in Seattle and Denver have been sharing book titles read via Twitter (#SEAreads, #DENreads, and #ReadingBowl). The city with the most tweets by the end of the Super Bowl wins.
“The Reading Bowl champion will win a tribute display to their team and city in the rival’s main library. Images of the display will be shared on Twitter and Facebook.
“The Seattle Public Library encourages readers to share book titles read and photos showing their support. Tweet what you’re reading and help us win!”
