Novel Nights: Full Series Pass

Hugo House invites you to join us for our second annual fall fundraiser Novel Nights. Last fall, Novel Nights was hosted in beautiful homes with the authors present; this year, because of the public health crisis, all of our Novel Nights events will be held virtually.

Books don’t exist only in the solitude of our minds; they come alive in the conversations we have about them. At Novel Nights, you’ll delve into the depths of recently published books in the company of some of your favorite authors, fellow book-lovers, and friends—all while supporting Hugo House.

This year’s literary salons feature bestselling authors with recently published books, including Erik Larson, Neal Bascomb, Jess Walter, Sharyn Skeeter, Pramila Jayapal, and Matt Ruff.

Each event will feature a lively and in-depth discussion with the author and a Q&A session with the audience. The discussions will be led by guest moderators, who can provide special insight into the book.

Novel Nights is sponsored by Anne and Geof Barker, DeNoma Literary Services, and The Elliott Bay Book Company.

For $100, you will get access to all six Novel Nights events, including:

Plus, you can get signed books from the authors for an additional $50 per book. If you would like to purchase signed books, choose the ticket option that matches the number of books you’d like to purchase, and then select the book(s) you’re interested in from the menu at checkout. (For 6 books, you won’t see a menu; we’ll send you one of each!)
