The only year-round literary event in Los Angeles for Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror fans is coming to Seattle!
For five years, Shades & Shadows has been putting on live reading events featuring a mixture of authors from across the genre fiction spectrum. Now we’re taking our show on the road, and our first show is at the University Bookstore!
Just because it’s summer time doesn’t mean you can’t get a chill sent down your spine. This is going to be unlike any reading event you’ve been to. Shades & Shadows lives our motto: It’s literature, but with monsters.
