StoryStudio Readings and Book Events

We love to celebrate writers and readers in our community! StoryStudio is thrilled when we can host a reading or book launch for our current and former students.

Student Readings: Join us for our periodic student readings, either virtually or in-person, depending on the session and the season! We love to feature the work of our students, and we’re dedicated to our independent bookstores. When we’re in person, find us at one of our favorites: The Book Cellar.

Book Launches: StoryStudio is lucky to partner with various bookstores around the city and help co-sponsor book launches for writers in our community. Whether we’re cheering in the seats, in conversation with the author, or just introducing the event, we’re always game to support our writers.
