Baen Books Announces Author Reading Series on Facebook LIVE

Innovative Independent Publisher to Bring Author Readings, Q&As, and Convention-Style Programming to Facebook LIVE

RIVERDALE, NEW YORK, April 2, 2020—Can’t get to the bookstore to see your favorite author? We will bring your favorite author to you!

We are proud to announce the beginning of a weekly author reading series to be conducted at 8 PM Eastern Standard Time every Friday, starting tomorrow, April 3rd. The Baen Friday Night Live Reading Series will be hosted by our Junior Editor, Christopher Ruocchio, via Zoom and Facebook LIVE. Our authors will read from new and upcoming releases and take questions from the audience afterwards.

Our first guest will be award-winning author LARRY CORREIA, who will be reading from Destroyer of Worlds, the third volume in his Saga of the Forgotten Warrior epic fantasy series. Our second guest will be STEVEN BARNES, reading from Starborn & Godsons, the third volume in the acclaimed Legacy of Heorot series that he co-authored with Larry Niven and the late Jerry Pournelle.

Additionally, Baen will be hosting a live version of our Travelling Roadshow, a showcase of all our upcoming titles—with special attention paid to our gorgeous original cover art, free ebook library, extensive study guides, and more—featuring several of our authors. As always, audience interaction is encouraged, and there will be free books awarded. The Roadshow will air in two parts, one at 4 PM Eastern on 4/11 and the next at 4 PM Eastern on 4/18.
