The Denver Science Fiction & Fantasy Reading Series

The Denver Science Fiction & Fantasy Reading Series occurs every second Saturday in January, March, May, July, September, and November. Currently at the charming BookBar on Tennyson, in the vibrant Berkeley neighborhood, the reading series brings authors together in an intimate atmosphere. I host the series so that they can share their work, talking with me and with fans both old and new, and so that everyone interested can enjoy an out-of-this-world evening while keeping their feet firmly planted on the ground with good company, excellent wine,* and tasty nibbles.

Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reading with Rebecca Roanhorse and Lauren C. Teffeau

On 8 September, join me as I host Rebecca Roanhorse (Nebula Award winner and author of Trail of Lightning) and Lauren C. Teffeau (author of Implanted). They’ll read for their newest releases, we’ll have a great discussion, and then we’ll break for signings and a meet-and-greet. These are two remarkably unique writers, and I’m thrilled that we’re getting them at the BookBar. As always, BookBar will offer delicious wines and tasty treats.

* While the wine is only for those twenty-one and older, these events are all-ages and open to the public. Authors may, however, choose to read from sections of their works which may not be entirely appropriate for all audiences, but the bookstore contains plenty of nooks and crannies for temporary retreat with little ones and sensitive ears!
