About the Event.

Come meet four new authors and hear how they navigated the world of publishing and discovered the subjects of their novels, including former powerHouse Books editor Kate Hope Day. Ranging from the parallel realities of Day’s If, Then to Bartz’s Brooklyn hipster thriller The Lost Night, to White Elephant, Julia Langsdorf’s perceptive tapestry of suburban D.C, to Collins’ gripping familial thriller The Winter Sister, these authors represent a wide swath of what’s hot today in fiction, and the kinds of subject matter that is closest to the pulse of publishing. See them discuss their paths to becoming first time novelists, ask them questions, and follow along as they recount the inspiration and hard work that went into crafting their hotly tipped debuts.
