Panel Discussion

With a science fiction and fantasy section that's bursting at the gills and readings and signings with bestselling and up-and-coming authors in the genre nearly every week, our stores would not be the same without the many speculative fiction readers and writers who've made us their bookstore.

On Independent Book Store Day, we're celebrating with a panel discussion featuring local authors who've made names for themselves bringing captivating worlds of science fiction and fantasy to life. For a look inside their writing processes, the genre, and the many worlds and characters they've created, join us for what is sure to be a fascinating literary discussion with complimentary beverages provided by Bellevue Brewing Company.
