It’s both fun and comforting to interact with people who share your love of reading, isn’t it? Many of us are involved in a local book club. Many of us congregate with like-minded readers via Facebook groups or Twitter, Instagram, and the like. And perhaps a few of us have had the opportunity to attend a large-scale event for readers.
I thought I’d take this post to list some of the wonderful upcoming reader events I know about. With any luck, one of these might be within driving distance of where you live. If so, here’s hoping you’ll be inspired to grab a book-loving friend and attend an event that will enable you to chat with authors and mingle with readers. I’ve placed a link to each event in the body of this post. Click on that to be taken to a site with more details.
The first event I’m going to list is the one that’s nearest and dearest to my heart because it’s the only one specifically for readers of Christian fiction and because I’ll be speaking at it. 😉
But it’s in August! you say. I haven’t even thought about what I’ll be doing in August yet.
Well, it’s time to think on whether you’ll be attending the Christian Fiction Readers Retreat because there are only a handful of tickets left. So embrace the joy of planning ahead and come see us in Cincinnati!

Here’s a video I recorded a few minutes before the start of the Literacy Autographing at RWA’s conference last summer. It will give you a peek into what this event is like….
Have you attended any local or national reader events in the past? Are there any you’re planning to attend this year? I’d love to know about more events like the ones mentioned above!
