Author-Reader Connections

One of the best things about Left Coast Crime is the chance to get to know your fellow readers and writers. But sometimes, during the excitement and flurry of activities, it’s not always easy to find time to meet your favorite writer. Author-Reader Connections provide an easy forum for readers and authors to enjoy some time together as a small group. These Author-Reader Connections are free, and in some cases may include some special benefits from the authors.

Only registered FAN attendees may sign up for Author-Reader Connections. Individuals may sign up for no more than two Connections and no more than one per Author Host.

THE FINE PRINT: Your Left Coast Crime 2022 Name Badge will be required to participate. Author Connections are not official activities sponsored by Left Coast Crime, but are agreements between the participants. Participants assume the entire responsibility and liability for losses, damages, and claims arising out of injury or damage during Author-Reader Connections activities. Participants shall indemnify and hold harmless Left Coast Crime, and the agents and employees of the organization from any and all such losses, damages and claims.
