Jennifer Ambrose (JenniferWriter) | 11 comments How many times have you missed out on a great book/ author event simply because you didn't know about it?

It's happened to me way too many times. I thought this would be a great place to share event information for local book/ author events, starting with my region of New England. Maybe we can even coordinate attending events together!

I'd like to focus this thread on female Fantasy/ Science Fiction authors and other events that would be of interest to the Sirens community. Thanks, everyone!
