The Author Dating Game

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Imagine if finding a new author was like the old time "dating game" from the 70s.  We put 3 authors on 1 side of a screen, and a potential reader on the other.  The reader asks a series of "dating questions" about the author's main character and then decides at the end of their round which book they would like to read.
