What is Readers at the Roller Derby?

In 2018, bestselling author Elicia Hyder had a dream of combining two of her greatest loves: Books & Roller Derby. So with the release of her first roller derby novel, LIGHTS OUT LUCY, Elicia decided to do a different kind of book tour. Readers at the Roller Derby was born.

Join Elicia Hyder and some of her amazing author friends for a night of books, brawls, and Bay Area Roller Derby!  Proceeds from the event go to support a local charity. TBA

Elicia Hyder
eL’s Bells #55
Bestselling author Elicia Hyder skated as eL’s Bells with the Nashville Rollergirls. After a black eye, a broken finger, a severely pulled groin, and two knee injuries, Elicia hung up her skates to focus on a safer hobby—writing.


She has fictionalized her experience in her latest novel, Lights Out Lucy: Roller Derby 101. More novels are to come in the Music City Rollers series.
