Read the Room TDA Event: Charlotte Nicole Davis, Louise Callaghan, Rita Woods & A.K. Larkwood, moderated by TJ Klune
We are super psyched to co-host the first "Read the Room" event, Tom Doherty Associate's brand new monthly virtual event series meant to bring authors, booksellers, and readers together into the same virtual “room.” The theme will be “New Year, New Formats: Debuts Now in Paperback.” Join Charlotte Nicole Davis (The Good Luck Girls), Louise Callaghan (Father of Lions), Rita Woods (Remembrance), and A.K. Larkwood (The Unspoken Name) for a discussion on all things bookish, what it takes to be an author, and the roses and thorns of being a debut novelist during 2020. TJ Klune (The House in the Cerulean Sea, The Extraordinaries) will moderate, and Loyalty will fulfill book orders. The event will be hosted by Macmillan on Crowdcast. You can register and watch the event here: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/
