Science Fiction Writers of America the Pacific Northwest Reading Series
Hosted by Brent Weeks, with invited guests Jay Lake and Kay Kenyon.
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 authors.
Each event starts with notes from the host, a leading local 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.
No tickets are required but they request an RSVP so they have a general idea of how many people are attending.
