Don't miss The Seattle Times' LiveWire, a new event series presented by Microsoft that features meaningful discussions about vital issues impacting our region and its people. The inaugural event, "The Case for Early Learning," brings together an esteemed panel of leaders in the field. 

Brain scientists, education experts and political leaders will explore the following questions: How do children learn from birth to age 3? Should Washington offer free universal preschool for all? How can our limited public tax resources best serve our most precious local resource — our community’s children? The event will be moderated by Seattle Times education reporter John Higgins.

LiveWire takes place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 15 on the Microsoft campus, located at 16070 N.E. 36th Way in Redmond. Light refreshments will be served beginning at 6 p.m. Tickets are free, but space is limited for this event.
