A Registrant Asks…

First in our occasional series, as Registrants ask us questions we think all attendees might benefit from knowing.

What is “author speed dating”?

It’s not what you think! 

Each author gets a chance to pitch their book(s) to 22 tables of 8 readers to a table. Authors are put in groups of 2 and move from table to table every 4 minutes — so if you and I were paired I would talk for 2 minutes and then you would talk for 2 minutes. We’d pass out bookmarks or other stuff. And then at the 4 minute mark we’d travel to the next table!

It is incredibly popular and the dealer room floods with buyers when it is done!
