Join these two legendary women for a no-holds-barred conversation and an evening of intrigue and insight at Barnes & Noble on May 20th, or watch them discuss the phenomenon on Joy Behar: Say Anything!
Nobody knows publishing like Judith Regan, with wildly popular acquisitions ranging from The Game to Wicked. Laura Antoniou has a developed a loyal following for The Marketplace, a series of erotic fiction that captured the dynamics of BDSM long before 50 Shades of Grey had emerged. Both women contributed to 50 Writers on 50 Shades of Grey (Lori Perkins), a comprehensive examination of the phenomenon. Laura and Judith have been on the cutting edge of writing, always a step ahead of the trends, and are perfectly poised to discuss the current climate of publishing and writing from an insider perspective.
