  • Closing Keynote Speaker: AIMEE BENDER

    One of America’s most imaginative literary writers, Aimee Bender has been described by the Los Angeles Times as “black-lit brazen and unapologetically wackadoodle, sidesplitting and buck wild.” The stories of her 1998 debut, THE GIRL IN THE FLAMMABLE SKIRT, make the fantastic eerily familiar—from a boyfriend devolving into a salamander to a high school liaison between a mermaid and an imp—in prose that “makes you grateful for the very existence of language” (San Francisco Chronicle). Her novel THE PARTICULAR SADNESS OF LEMON CAKE, about a girl who can taste her mother’s emotions, became a nationwide best-seller. Her most recent story collection, The COLOR MASTER, was a New York Times Notable Book of 2013.

    Tracy Wolff


    New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from sweet contemporary to erotica, from paranormal to Urban Fantasy and from young adult to new adult.
