Antoinette Kuritz firmly believes that whenever a door closes, it is because we are
poised to open another.
As a lover of written words and the authors who wrote them Antoinette taught 5th
grade through high school. A toxic injury in 1991 led her out of the classroom and into a
bookstore – where she went in short order from bookseller to event planner and
developed a reputation among authors that soon led to her becoming a literary
publicist. Seeing the changes coming in the publishing industry, she added book
developer to her resume and soon thereafter founded the La Jolla Writers Conference.
Now in its nineteenth year, the conference has been called by Writer’s Digest one of the
84 conferences in the country worth the money. Simultaneously, she also hosted
Writers Roundtable radio show for eight years, has been the Book Lady on KUSI-TV
Good Morning San Diego for 20 years, and with her business partner, she created
Nightstand Press.
