Each season, Simon & Schuster partners with book festivals nationwide to present insightful panel discussions between celebrated authors. The Kentucky Book Festival was excited to be a partner for this Fall AuthorFest virtual event, featuring John Irving and Jason Reynolds!
The Fall 2022 AuthorFest Event featured New York Times bestselling authors John Irving and Jason Reynolds. Both legendary authors are famous for crafting thought-provoking stories about the expression of self-identity through explorations of race, class, and sexuality. The conversation was moderated by Simon & Schuster’s CEO, Jonathan Karp.
