Join us in the Reader's Lounge Book Exhibit & Author Panel! Click tab for dates.

The Reader's Lounge Book Exhibit & Author Panel™ was created in the summer of 2016 in Lake Charles, La with a mission to connect authors and readers in an intimate gathering as authors discuss important societal topics presented in their stories. Since 2016, the Reader's Lounge Book Exhibit & Author Panel has grown beyond our expectations and is now being planted around the world. 

Attendees can expect a free, family-friendly gathering with the opportunity to have up-close-and-personal conversations with a diverse line-up of authors from around the world as the event serves as an exclusive ‘Readers Meet Up’ for book lovers 

of all ages.

“The Reader's Lounge Book Exhibit & Author Panel was created with indie authors and avid readers in mind. Since the event's inception in 2016, we have created an international literary hub that has established 

life-long connections of authors and their readers. My favorite part of the event is when a reader thank me for the topics discussed in the panel discussion," said Sierra Demouchet, event coordinator.

Authors can expect a low-cost literary event that allows an intimate conversation with readers. Destined Eloquence Publishing prides itself with creating a loving and supportive atmosphere for all authors. All authors participating in the event are afforded the opportunity to promote and/or read from their work in an Author Spotlight. Panelists for the Author Panel Discussion are selected and notified at a later date, no costs associated (must sign up as an exhibitor to be considered).
