One Love Author & Reader Reunion (#OLR23) is just what its name says!

It’s an event designed to bring authors and readers together to share their common love of books. This literary event showcases the romance and women’s fiction books that give hope and escapism while providing a safe, inclusive and caring atmosphere. We offer three-and-a-half days of author and reader activities culminating in one large booksigning and dance party.


As the COVID-19 pandemic is still plaguing our nation, please be assured that we are keeping a close eye on all new developments, vaccination efforts, safety recommendations and relative restrictions. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. We reserve the right to adjust, postpone or cancel any event in light of this pandemic.

Safety remains our priority at One Love Reunion and we urge all who attend to be vaccinated. Additionally, attendees, industry professionals, influencers, authors, staff and volunteers attending #OLR23, will be required to properly wear a mask throughout the event (with the only exclusion being while eating meals). OLR reserves the right to deny access to any person(s) over the age of 2 who refuse to wear a mask/face covering during any #OLR23 related activity.

More information on CDC guidance for mask-wearing is available here.

Is this an event for authors or readers?

Both! Our primary goal is to connect readers with some of their favorite authors and possibly introduce them to new authors. The program is full of opportunities for readers to enjoy intimate time with authors as well as participate in fun activities. Authors will appreciate seeing familiar faces as well as have a couple of opportunities to participate in professional focused sessions.
