Check out LELA House’s upcoming events! Events include traditional book clubs, silent book clubs, group writing time, and salons (community discussions on a variety of LELA – life, education, literature, arts – topics).
Our book club author from April 2020 through March 2021 is Octavia E. Butler, sci-fi and fantasy writer extraordinaire. We will make our way through all of her novels and many of her short stories. Check out this video to learn more about Octavia Butler.
Tuesday events occur every other Tuesday at 12p PT/1p MT/2p CT/3p ET and will rotate through all four types of events.
Thursday events occur every other Thursday at 5p PT/6p MT/7p CT/8p ET and will rotate through all four types of events.
All events are virtual and last one hour. Registration is required, but events are free. Clicking on an event will take you to an Eventbrite page for that event. You’ll receive a link to join the event, once you’ve registered. Come join the LELA House community!
