About SFWA Pacific Northwest Reading Series


Register to attend the event

The greater Pacific Northwest is home to Ursula K. Le Guin, Kay Kenyon, Jay Lake, Nancy Kress, Brent Weeks, Ted Chiang and Ramona Quimby. Known for their science fiction and fantasy escapades, they will be celebrated as part of the Pacific Northwest Reading Series. These free quarterly events provide the Northwest science fiction and fantasy community a chance to gather, network and enjoy readings from local and visiting authors.

Each event features three authors who read from their latest work, interpreting and explaining their concepts and vision. In addition, space is provided for networking and conversation. Booksellers from Wrigley-Cross Books will be on hand with copies of the authors’ and other books for you to buy.

About Mary Rosenblum

Mary RosenblumMary Rosenblum has been publishing her fiction since 1988, when she graduated from the Clarion West Writers Workshop with a sale to Asimov’s Magazine, and has been a finalist for both Hugo and Nebula awards, as well as a winner of the Sideways in Time Award and the Compton Cook Award for Best First Novel. She writes speculative fiction as Mary Rosenblum and mystery as Mary Freeman, with eight novels out from New York publishers and dozens of published short stories. She has returned to Clarion West twice as an instructor, and divides her time between writing and working as a “literary midwife” for new authors. When she’s not working with words, she’s flying a small plane as an instrument-rated pilot.
