Bookstore Romance Day
Saturday is the second annual Bookstore Romance Day!
If you aren't normally a Romance reader, we encourage you to give it a try. The genre is more contemporary and more diverse than ever, and if you haven't picked up a novel since the days of Fabio, you will be pleasantly surprised. Check out our in stock Romance list for the titles currently heating up our shelves. And, get a free Indies Love Romance tote with any romance purchase, while supplies last.
We celebrated with chocolates and roses last year, and of course this year looks a little different. That said, if you don't mind supplying your own confections, you might even have more fun with all of the fabulous authors hosting panel discussions and readings throughout the day.
Here's the schedule:
9 am: Official welcome with Ambassador (and author) Meg Cabot
10 am: Coffee break with authors Mona Shroff, Delores Fossen & Cara Bastone
