New York, NY

Feminists Take On the Romance Genre

The Strand
828 Broadway (&12th St)
New York, NY 10003
United States
7:00pm - 8:00pm

Join Eloisa along with friends, Julia Quinn, Sarah MacLean and Maya Rodale at Strand Bookstore.

For years the romance genre has been dismissed as nothing but fantastical fluff designed to be an escape for overworked housewives, featuring damsels in distress needing a big, strong man to come to the rescue. These women are here to say NOT TRUE! Romance writing can star powerful women, ones who take control of their fate and deal with down-to-Earth realities.

Join this powerful panel of romance writers as they discuss feminism in relation to their genre.
