About the Panelists:
Jessica Buck (she/her) is an Adult Services Librarian at the Escondido Public Library where she focuses on reference services, outreach, and programming. Jessica hosts various author chats as well as the library’s Between the Covers Romance Book Club. Follow her on twitter @mrsjgbuck and Instagram @romancelibrarian.

Sarah Dass was born and raised in Trinidad and Tobago. A graduate of the University of the West Indies and University College London, she works as an Office Administrator by day and writes stories about growing up in the Caribbean by night. When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing, or taking walks with her dachshund. The only thing she loves more than a lazy day at home is exploring new countries. Her debut novel, WHERE THE RHYTHM TAKES YOU, a YA contemporary retelling of Jane Austen’s PERSUASION, will be published by Balzer + Bray / HarperCollins in 2021.

USA Today bestselling author Sonali Dev writes Bollywood-style love stories that explore universal issues. Her novels have been named Best Books of the Year by Library Journal, NPR, the Washington Post, and Kirkus. She has won numerous accolades, including the American Library Association’s award for best romance, the RT Reviewer Choice Award for best contemporary romance, multiple RT Seals of Excellence, has been a RITA® finalist, and has been listed for the Dublin Literary Award. Shelf Awareness calls her “Not only one of the best but one of the bravest romance novelists working today.” She lives in Chicagoland with her husband, two visiting adult children, and the world’s most perfect dog.

Social media mage by day, and nerd of many fandoms by night, Bianca Hernandez-Knight is a lady of many interests. From fighting for a more inclusive Jane Austen community, to ignoring her TBR pile, she’s always ready for her next nerdy project.

Devoney Looser is Regents Professor of English at Arizona State University. She has authored or edited nine books, including The Making of Jane Austen and The Daily Jane Austen: A Year in Quotes, as well as a series of video lessons on Jane Austen for The Great Courses. She has published essays in such places as the Atlantic, the New York Times, Salon, the TLS, and the Washington Post. With the support of a Guggenheim Fellowship and NEH Public Scholar Award, Looser has completed a biography, Sister Novelists: Jane and Anna Maria Porter, to be published in fall 2022 by Bloomsbury.

Tirzah Price is the author of the Jane Austen Murder Mysteries. She grew up on a farm in Michigan, where she read every book she could get her hands on and never outgrew her love for YA fiction. She holds an MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and is a former bookseller and librarian. Now, she’s a contributing editor at Book Riot. When she’s not writing, reading, or thinking about YA books, she splits her time between experimenting in the kitchen and knitting enough socks to last the fierce Michigan winters.
