We work hard to bring events to our community for free, because connecting readers with authors is central to our mission. But these programs are not free for us to put on! If you’re interested in attending, we hope you’ll consider purchasing a copy of Valentine from our bookshop. Your support is critical to keeping us here and offering events like this, and we hope to do that for many years to come!
