The Geek-Out is writers geeking out about literature, plain and simple! One writer will make the other read something for the first time and then for about an hour they talk together about craft, impact, what they loved, what they didn’t. The audience is encouraged to read the book, too, but it’s not necessary.

The event is now in partnership with Niles Library. We hope to make The Geek-Out a regular series, inviting your favorite writers to participate and discuss other legendary stories and books.
