Dictionary: elevator pitch (noun) (informal) a succinct and persuasive sales pitch, usually for a book.
An opportunity for writers practice their 'elevator pitch’. This is intended as a fun and constructive ice-breaker where authors are challenged to stand up and introduce their book in 30 seconds or less - and get feedback! (And perhaps sell a copy or two if their pitch appeals to the audience.) Ideal practice for when someone asks at a dinner party, "So what’s your book about?".
