Seventh Annual Marie Force Reader Weekend
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.!

If you've already 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). Request your refund by emailing
  1. Transfer your 2020 registration to the 2021 event (hotel reservation will NOT transfer). Request your transfer by emailing
If you didn’t register for this year’s event and would like to join us in 2021, please proceed below to register.

Currently, you may register for two events and two tours for Reader Weekend. Registrations will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis and space is limited so please register as soon as you can to ensure your spot. Available events include:
  • $75 for the Welcome Dinner on Friday evening with music, food and drinks.
  • $50 for the day tour of Washington, DC Saturday from approx. 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with stops at Eastern Market (Sam and Nick's neighborhood from the Fatal Series) and Georgetown. Transportation provided by motor coach. Lunch is on your own either in the Eastern Market or Georgetown neighborhoods.
