Bookstore Romance Day

Celebrate Bookstore Romance Day with River Bend Bookshop

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. 

Free Indies Love Romance Totes at River Bend Bookshop

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

Noon: Exclusive video from author JR Ward

1 pm: Lunch date with authors Synithia Williams, Reese Ryan and Roan Parrish

2 pm: Avon Spotlight panel with authors Meg Cabot, Talia Hibbert & Alexis Daria, moderated by Maureen Lee Lenker of Entertainment Weekly

3 pm: Rom Coms for Readers from 13 to 113, with authors Sarah Morgenthaler, Annabeth Albert, Suzanne Park, Miranda Kenneally, K.L. Walther and Ann Marie Walker

4 pm: Tea Time with authors RaeAnne Thayne, Maisey Yates & Melissa Senate

6 pm: Young Adult Happily Ever Afters with authors Mason Deaver, Debbie Rigaud, Lucas Rocha & Leah Johnson. Scholastic will also be giving away a fabulous basket full of books. You can enter to win here.
