Hey, I’m Ariel, the founder of the Offbeat Empire, author of some books, and publisher of offbeatbride.com and offbeathome.com. I run a series of events called Offbeat Ada’s, where I host fellow authors and thought leaders for discussions at The Lab At Ada‘s Technical Books, a lovely event space on Capitol Hill.
Capacity at The Lab is about 35 people, and the darkly appointed, deeply stylish space has a full bar. The structure of the events are 30ish minutes of conversation between the author and me, and then 30-40 minutes of Q&A with the audience. Events are typically ticketed with two tiers: book+reserved seat or just a reserved seat.
The space, booze, format, and ticketing all combine to make these events feel a bit more special than just a typical in-bookstore event.

WITCHES, SLUTS, PUSSIES
Join curator Ariel Meadow Stallings from the Offbeat Empire for an evening of discussion with New York author Kristen J. Sollée. Kristen is the author of Witches Sluts Feminists—a longtime Ada’s top seller—and will be joining us to talk about her new book, Cat Call: Reclaiming the Feral Feminine.
Kristen and Ariel will be in conversation about Kristen’s research around the cat and its indivisible connection to femininity and female sexuality in myth, politics, pop culture, and magical practice, and they will also touch on themes from Witches Sluts Feminists. Kristen’s last event at Ada’s sold out in days, so get your tickets now!
