Phoenix Public Library and Changing Hands Bookstore present Pitchapalooza from 5 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9 at Burton Barr Central Library, 1221 N. Central Ave.

Pitchapalooza is a free event, giving randomly selected writers one minute to present their best “elevator pitch” to a panel of book experts. One lucky author will win an introduction to a literary agent in their genre. Pitchapalooza follows an Indie Author Publishing Conference, offered by Changing Hands Bookstore, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. at Burton Barr Central Library.
