Connecting with readers and other writers is one of the benefits of being an author. When I do a book signing and see readers and other writers there supporting my work, it warms my heart. But when I watch the participants also mingling and chatting with each other, it excites me. That is what a writing community is all about.

Indie Bookstores supporting local authors, book clubs discussing books, organizations that encourage reading and writing, and writing conferences are all ways to connect with others who love books. To help assist in this gathering of community, I’m sharing Upcoming Events here in the San Diego area (and sometimes elsewhere) that might be of interest to writers and readers. I encourage you to check them out!
