This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Friday, 6:30 pm EST - 8:00 pm EST October 21, 2022

The Center for Fiction

Capacity is limited. Please note that if your desired group is not listed, it is sold out. Please email Celeste Kaufman at to join the waitlist.

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.

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 October 14th!

Please Note: Doors open at 6pm and early arrival is encouraged. The event starts at 6:30pm and 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 before the day of the event. 

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 an uneven number of registrations by gender, we will refund guests beginning with the most recent registrant the day prior to the event.
