Reader Meet Writer Author Series

         

CONNECTING READERS WITH THE AUTHORS WE LOVE...
The Reader Meet Writer Author Series features bestselling authors and fresh new voices, fiction, and nonfiction titles in an engaging and accessible format. In these changing times, you don't have to sacrifice your love of literature because these virtual events bring authors right into your home! 

The series was created and is facilitated by the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA) in partnership with Writer's Block Bookstore and other indie booksellers as a way to connect authors and readers in a way where we can safely and comfortably gather. Each Reader Meet Writer event is fully moderated and hosted, with plenty of time for author Q & A. Plus, all events are recorded and available to stream at SIBA's Reader Meet Writer TV YouTube channel.
