SFWA Pacific Northwest Reading Series

The greater Pacific Northwest is home to Ursula K. Le Guin, Kay Kenyon, Jay Lake, Nancy Kress, Brent Weeks, Ted Chiang and Ramona Quimby. Although Ramona isn’t known for her Science Fiction and Fantasy escapades, the rest are, and will be celebrated as part of the Pacific Northwest Reading Series. These free quarterly events provide the Northwest Science Fiction and Fantasy community a chance to gather, network and enjoy readings from local and visiting authors in Portland and Seattle.

Each event starts with notes from the host, a leading author, who has selected two of their favorite writers to complete the evening’s theme. In turn, each is given time to read from their latest work, interpreting and explaining their concepts and vision. In addition, space is provided for networking and conversation.

The next Portland event will be held on Wednesday, April 24 and will also be hosted by Mary Robinette Kowal, accompanied by Tina Connolly and Nisi Shawl.

    Is there interest in meeting early? I'll try to get there a bit early @ 6-6:15 and grab a bite at the Boiler Room. You are all welcome to join me!

    FYI, there's online registration for this event. It doesn't say whether they won't let you register at the door, but since the event is free, it can't hurt. It only takes 5 minutes.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
