This Month At The Elliott Bay Book Company...

 

JULY 2016

HEAVENLY (RAPTURE)

Readings & Events at Elliott Bay Book Company

An average of ten times a week we are proud to present author readings and events in the intimate yet casual setting of our reading room, a book-lined room that accommodates small and large audiences alike. Readings are generally free of charge and seating is on a first come, first serve basis. A question and answer period and author signings often follow these readings.

In addition to here online, a printed monthly schedule of events is available free in the store. You may also sign up to receive our Monthly Events e-blast, a detailed calendar of our upcoming readings and events. Please check our website (or call us at 206-624-6600) for updated information about changes and additions to our readings calendar. Further information about the books and authors appearing in our readings series (and other book related information, including reviews, film clips, links to blog posts and more) may be found on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages. We look forward to seeing you!
