Reader Weekend is going on the road to… Washington, DC!

Join us for the Seventh Annual Reader Weekend on June 18-19, 2021.

Due to COVID-19, we felt it was best to cancel the 2020 Reader Weekend in Rhode Island. We will miss seeing you this summer and hope you and your family and friends are healthy and safe.

The exciting news is that Reader Weekend is hitting the road! Many have requested a visit to Washington, D.C. to see the city that serves as a backdrop to the Fatal Series, and we hope you’ll join us in 2021 in D.C.!

Reader Weekend will be back in RI on July 15-16, 2022 so mark your calendars now to save those dates!

This event was created in response to the readers who’ve expressed an interest in visiting the places Marie writes about in her books. Spend the weekend with Marie, hear all about what’s next for all your favorite characters and series, get your books signed in person and get to know Marie! 

For those of you who have registered for the 2020 Reader Weekend, you have two options:

  1. Cancel your 2020 registration and receive a full refund (note that if you have a hotel room at the Crowne Plaza, your room reservation will automatically be cancelled by June 30, 2020)

          OR

  1. Transfer your 2020 registration to the 2021 event (hotel reservation will NOT transfer)

If you didn’t register for this year’s event and would like to join us in 2021, please click here to register.

Please review the details below and email julie@marieforce.com to confirm that you want to cancel your 2020 registration or wish to transfer your 2020 registration to 2021.

What to Expect

During the course of the weekend, you’ll get to meet Marie, hear her discuss what’s coming for all the series you love, meet other readers and explore the Washington, D.C. area. We are working on a daytrip on Saturday that will include stops at some of Marie’s favorite places from the Fatal Series. Once details about this daytrip are available, we will reach out to registered attendees with the opportunity to register. You may also wish to explore the area on your own, and we will offer suggestions of things to do and see.

We’ve created this weekend with readers in mind to show you Washington, D.C. and bring you a little closer to the setting of Marie’s Fatal Series. We hope you’ll enjoy a taste of D.C.!
