There are numerous opportunities for Readers and Writers to come together. Here are just a few that might interest you. Some may be right in your neighborhood.
By the way, have no fear of traveling by yourself to these events. You will make friends. All you have to do is turn to the person next to you and ask, “What are you reading?” Readers are the most friendly, generous folks in the world.
This list will keep changing. I will post the international ones when I receive info for next year. Check back for updates:
