PANELS:

  • Tell Me a Secret Game Show from 5:00 to 6:00 pm EST
    They’ll tell you their deepest secrets…or, will they? Talia Hibbert, Eloisa James, Joanna Shupe and Sally Thorne get together for a saucy game-style panel where they reveal their deepest secrets…or make up stories so good, you’ll wish they were true! Like two truths and a lie, except there’s no telling how many truths will be revealed!

      • Participants: Talia Hibbert, Eloisa James, Joanna Shupe, Sally Thorne
      • Moderator: Kayleigh Webb
  • Love in Lockdown (moderated panel) from 6:15 to 7:15 pm EST
    Unlocking romance: Join Beverly Jenkins, Suzanne Park, Alisha Rai with moderator Amy Ratcliffe (Nerdist) for an exploration of how the past year has changed how they write, and how romance might evolve in a post-COVID (or at least, post-vaccine) world.  Clicking with the “locked up” theme, the panelists may also discuss “locked door” romances…and even play off “lock” by discussing 50 shades of super sexy bedroom dynamics in romance.
      • Participants: Beverly Jenkins, Suzanne Park, Alisha Rai
      • Moderator: Amy Ratcliffe, Nerdist
  • Bridgerton Bonanza (in-conversation with Julia Quinn) from 7:30 to 8:15 pm EST

Celebrating all things historical romance, this conversation will speak to the fantastic moment the genre is having along with a behind the scenes glimpse into how Bridgerton made the world fall in love. From page to screen adaptation, to being on set and meeting the cast, to the amazing reception the show has gotten and more, Julia will take a page out of Lady Whistledown’s book and dish on all things Bridgerton!
