Pour a glass of your favorite beverage or try one of our custom-designed Back Room cocktails and settle into your most comfortable chair for an evening of relaxed conversation with bestselling authors and your hosts, Karen Dionne and Hank Phillippi Ryan.
Each online event starts with a short introduction to a panel of 4 authors. The audience is then divided into 4 breakout rooms where they remain for the rest of the program while the authors visit each room in turn. Everyone’s video is turned on and their mics are unmuted, allowing for informal, face-to-face discussion. What’s more, breakout sessions are never recorded. What’s said in The Back Room stays in The Back Room!
Registration is free, but space is limited, so sign up, sit back, take a sip, and enjoy the conversation!
