The Pasadena Festival of Women Authors (PFWA) announced the exciting schedule of participating authors for the Saturday, April 8th, 2017 event to be held at the Pasadena Hilton Hotel from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The festival will feature Yaa Gyasi, whose novel, Homegoing, was one of the most talked-about books of 2016; Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney, author of the debut sensation, The Nest; and Amy Stewart, author of Lady Cop Makes Trouble, the second in her hit historical series, as well as four other outstanding authors.
The PFWA gives women authors a platform to share their personal experiences and journeys as writers, inspiring avid readers. In 2016 the PFWA expanded the program to include 7 speakers, added breakout sessions and increased seating by 70% and immediately sold-out. Due to continued high demand, the 2017 PFWA will have more seating with large screen video projection delivering a quality experience for all attendees.
