ReadOUT 2024: New Adult Panel
February 18 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Authors Ana Hartnett and Kristen Zimmer discuss their works of new adult fiction in this author panel. Ana Hartnett is an award-winning author of Sapphic romance with Bold Strokes Books. She lives in Atlanta where she heroically fights her writer’s block with long walks through the neighborhood and local brews. She is currently writing her seventh novel. Kristen Zimmer is the international best-selling author of new adult sapphic fiction titles The Gravity Between Us and When Sparks Fly. When not writing, she can be found yelling about the Boston Red Sox and stressing out her two cats at her home in Salem, MA.
Admission is $10 for both days with reduced and free admission available. Parking is available onsite and on the street. Meals are not provided as part of the festival but food options are available to purchase onsite and at nearby restaurants. Onsite book sales and author signings will occur both days.
