Last Month At The Elliott Bay Book Company...

 

AUGUST 2015

"THIS HOUSE OF SKY"

Readings & Events at The Elliott Bay Book Company

An average of ten times a week we are proud to present contemporary authors in the intimate yet casual setting of our reading room, a book-lined room that accommodates a pleasantly sized audience. These are generally free or with nominal charge. Tickets for designated events are available two weeks in advance of the event on a first come, first served basis. Questions and 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 or arrange have our printed schedule mailed to you for a $5 annual fee—just contact the store to start your subscription today. Please check back on our website (or call us) 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 page and on Twitter at @ElliottBayBooks and on our Elliott Bay Book Company Instagram page.
