Booking for Love: Literary Speed Dating

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Friday, 6:00 pm EDT - 8:00 pm EDT June 28, 2024

The Center for Fiction

Capacity is limited. Please note that if your desired group is not listed, it is sold out. To join the waitlist, please email us at [email protected].

If your dream meet-cute is reaching for the same book on the shelves of a bookstore that happens to have flattering natural light and a convenient café that serves coffee and cocktails to chat over with your new love interest, join us for Booking for Love! You’ll meet several bookish babes at this literary speed dating event, and if both people are interested in continuing the conversation you’ll each receive information about how to get back in touch. Bring a book you can’t wait to talk about, enjoy happy hour specials from our Café & Bar, and arrive ready for romance.

Our aim is to have each guest go on 12 mini-dates, depending on registration. All ages are welcome, but since we do not divide the group by ages please be aware that, typically, attendees are in their early 20s through early 40s. Unfortunately, if we have a large discrepancy of registrations by gender, we will refund guests, beginning with the most recent registrant, the day prior to the event so that we have an even number of participants.

Help us give our guests the best experience possible! Please Note: Doors open at 5:45pm and we aim to begin promptly at 6pm but the event can only begin once everyone has arrived. The event ends at 8pm. Please do not buy a ticket if you are unable to arrive on time or stay for the full event. If you buy a ticket and are unable to attend, notify us by emailing [email protected] at least 48 hours prior to the event so that we may release tickets. Refunds will not be granted for day-of cancellations.

Participants are invited to register for the group that best aligns with their identity and whom they are seeking. LGBTQ+ singles can also join us on June 21st!
