Larkin Square Authors & Speakers

The Larkin Square Author  and Speaker Series is a collaboration between Larkin Square and Talking Leaves Books.  The Series features local and national authors of both fiction and non-fiction works. The Series also welcomes speakers on a variety of topics who may not have authored a book, but have an interesting story to share!

Beer, wine and snacks are available for purchase from The Filling Station throughout the event. These informal talks are free and open to the public, and include time for Q&A and book-signings. Unless noted, talks begin at 5:30 pm with doors opening at 4:45 pm for sale of refreshments and books. Check back for updates to the schedule and new events, or sign up for our newsletter.
