It’s a popular sentiment, wanting to escape the drudgery of everyday life in favor of new worlds—worlds where fairy tales take on new life, where gardens and witches have the power to enchant people, where young princesses and budding witches seek to find their place. You won’t want to miss these authors as they discuss the intricate worlds they’ve built and where they find the inspiration for the fantastical in this world. Hear from bewitching novelist Shea Ernshaw, Founder and President of Publishing at Glasstown Entertainment Lexa Hillyer, debut fantasy writer Laura Sebastian, creator of the Everland series Wendy Spinale, and best-selling author Leslye Walton. (Remember, anyone under age 18 is let in free—no wristbands necessary!)
