Robyn Harding, Kate Hilton, Jennifer Robson
Moderator: Marsha Lederman

“Bestselling author”—words that many authors strive for and few achieve. Last year, three of Jennifer Robson’s novels were on the Globe and Mail’s Canadian fiction bestseller list at the same time. Kate Hilton spent 11 weeks on the Globe and Mail’s bestseller list for her debut novel, and reviewers are hailing her second novel, Just Like Family, as “smart, funny and honest.” Robyn Harding’s books have been translated into seven languages and her new novel The Party made the Indie Booksellers’ Bestseller list. How did all this good fortune happen? What pressure does it put on a writer? Is it harder to take chances when the publisher’s—or the readership’s—expectations are so high? And what’s the secret behind blending fine writing with popular appeal?
