Reading Series

The Denver Science Fiction & Fantasy Reading Series

I have the great privilege of hosting the Denver Science Fiction & Fantasy Reading Series. In 2017, I founded the Reading Series because there wasn’t anything quite like, not anywhere in Denver, the Front Range, or the mountain states. In 2018, the Series received a grant from the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, and in 2020 it continues to grow.

Every other month, at BookBar, we host some of the finest writers in science fiction and fantasy, including winners of the Hugo, Nebula, Locus, and Campbell Awards. We also feature up-and-coming local and regional writers, every one of which is worth the community’s attention and delectation.

Join us.

Where & When

Typically, the Reading Series occurs at the BookBar in Denver at 7pm on the second Saturday in the months of January, March, May, July, September, and November.
