Events at Pegasus Books

Since we began regularly hosting events in 2008, creative energies of Pegasus staffers have shaped a unique event program. Clay Banes helped Pegasus Books gain national recognition for our poetry events. Rachel Marcus allowed the program to experiment and expand. Joe Christiano nurtured First Person Singular into its current, award-winning status. Manuala Aronofsky developed our Lyrics & Dirges, Jazz Stories, and Happy Hour Stories monthly reading series. Marlon Rigel grew the program to feature award-winning graphic novelists and continues to summon outstanding artists and writers to Pegasus. Our current events coordinator, Shannon Rogers, ushered in the return of live, in-store events in February, 2023.

Below, a partial list of authors, artists, athletes and adversaries: 

Isabel Allende, Chester Brown, Jeff Chang, Daniel Clowes, Yrsa Daley-Ward, Dave Eggers, Michael DeForge, Yaa Gyasi, Lisa Hanawalt, Michael Horse, Jane Hirshfield, Tracy Kidder, Anne Lamott, Congresswoman Barbara Lee, Erika Lopez, Nayomi Munaweera, Anders Nilsen, Robert Pinsky, Mary Roach, Yumi Sakugawa, Sarah Schulman, Julia Serano, Craig Thompson, Adrian Tomine, Virgie Tovar, Julia Wertz, Jim Woodring, and many more.
