Seattle Arts & Lectures has a new director — Linda Bowers, who has been serving as interim director of the nonprofit literary organization.

Bowers, who has held the interim director spot since August, was appointed to the permanent job after a nationwide search. SAL runs several lecture and teaching series, as well as educational programs devoted to reading, writing and the discussion of literature.

"Linda Bowers impressed everyone with her creativity and vision, her background in Seattle's literary and arts communities, and her leadership abilities," said SAL board president Kim Brown Seely in a statement.

Bowers has worked at several literary organizations in the region, including Richard Hugo House and the Espy Foundation in Oysterville. She was the first executive director of the Hedgebrook writers' retreat on Whidbey Island. She's also worked in lobbying and policymaking at environmental organizations, including the Sierra Club and Friends of the Earth.

Bowers' appointment is effective Jan. 2. She replaces Margit Rankin, who resigned in June for personal reasons.
