These free quarterly events provide the Northwest Science Fiction and Fantasy community a chance to gather, network and enjoy readings from local authors.

    Each event features three authors who read from their latest work, interpreting and explaining their concepts and vision. In addition, space is provided for networking and conversation. The next event in the Seattle area (Kirkland, WA) will be held on Tuesday, April 29 and will feature Nancy Kress, Jack Skillingstad, and Leah Cutter plus special bonus reader Daryl Gregory. Set in the festive atmosphere of the Wilde Rover Irish Pub & Restaurant in Kirkland, WA, events begin at 7:00 pm, and end by 8:30 pm.
