Deep Dish Reading Series

In October 2017, the SLF partnered with SFWA and CNSC (Chicago Nerds Social Club) to create a SF/F reading series in Chicago, hosted at Volumes Book Cafe.

Please save the dates for our 2018-2019 series:

September 6, 2018 — featuring David D. Levine, with Mary Anne Mohanraj (editor of Survivor) and Steven Silver
November 8, 2018
March 7, 2019

Join us from 7 – 8:30 p.m. for a rapid-fire reading from the best of Chicago’s SF/F scene!

If you’re interested in reading with us, drop our Director, Mary Anne Mohanraj, a line at director@speclit.org, with the subject line SLF READING SERIES.  Please include a few lines about your writing thus far, although we do try to include a mix of emerging and established writers; you need not be published to participate.  If you have a new book coming out, though, do let us know — we’d love to feature it!

Co-sponsored by the Speculative Literature Foundation (www.speclit.org), SFWA (www.sfwa.org), and the Chicago Nerds Social Club (www.chicagonerds.org).
