Attention, frugal readers of books! As you probably already know, the internet has proven itself a suitable stage for author events while IRL readings remain on hold due to COVID, with bookstores and other platforms putting on events every week. To give you a taste of what's on offer now, we're giving away free tickets to the following events. Read on for more details.

To enter, fill out the form at the end of this page with your email address and which shows you're interested in. All entries must be received by 5 pm on Friday, April 30. Good luck!


Mary Roach: Live & Online
"Mary Roach has written about corpses (her description of severed heads sitting in dog bowls awaiting the steady hands of plastic surgeons will never leave me), shitting in space (look up "fecal decapitation"), orgasms (check out that TED Talk for info on recipes for semen and ancient greek orgasm theory), and she does it all with a clear eye and a dry humor," Rich Smith has noted. Join her tonight for a live Seattle Arts & Lectures talk online, where she'll be chatting about her forthcoming book about the often fraught encounters between animals and people.

Show Date: Sunday, May 9 at 6 pm


The Moth Mainstage
Five storytellers will take the virtual stage at Benaroya for a night of memoir-ish oral history, as part of radio sensation The Moth's Mainstage series.

Show Date: Friday, May 21 at 7:30 pm
