Welcome to
Book Passage’s

Conversations with Authors

Live sessions with the writers and thinkers most committed to America’s independent bookstores

Help keep us connected. Share the news about Book Passage's live events with a friend.

For more than 40 years, Book Passage has been the welcoming home for readers. And now, we’re pleased to share a remarkable schedule of conversations with many of our favorite authors—many long-time friends of Book Passage—well beyond the Bay Area.

Please join us here each week together with great authors and thinkers to share ideas and celebrate our community. These live, free, intimate conversations explore what it means to be living through these times, and what it means to stay connected to the people and the ideas that bind us.

Register once, and you’re guaranteed a seat at every upcoming Conversations with Authors event. You’ll be invited to help shape each session in advance by prioritizing the issues we discuss, and you’ll have the chance to ask additional questions during each conversation. You can also view the free archive of any event you might have missed, any time you like.

Have a question? Problem logging in? Email works best. Please send a note to bookpassage@extendedsession.com

We’ll respond within 24 hours (or sooner!)
