Politics, magic, con artists, and romance collide at Red Balloon Bookshop when Susan Dennard and Kristen Simmons stop by on the same night! Join the authors of Bloodwitch and The Deceivers for a conversation about writing, stories, witches, heists, true love, and so much more. Hang out with other YA fans, meet two amazing authors, make a souvenir button, and get your books signed - what could be better?!
Susan Dennard is the author of the New York Times bestselling Witchlands series as well as the Something Strange and Deadly series. She has come a long way from small-town Georgia. Working in marine biology, she got to travel the world—six out of seven continents (she’ll get to Asia one of these days!)—before she settled down as a full-time novelist and writing instructor. When not writing, she can be found hiking with her dogs, slaying darkspawn on her Xbox, or earning bruises at the dojo.
Kristen Simmons is the author of the Article 5 series, The Glass Arrow, Metaltown, and Pacifica. She has worked with survivors of abuse and trauma as a mental health therapist, taught Jazzercise in five states, and is forever in search of the next best cupcake. Currently she lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with her husband, where she spends her days supporting the caffeine industry and chasing her delightfully rambunctious son.
