Harvard Book Store's virtual event series welcomes award-winning authors ALEXANDRIA BELLEFLEUR, ALYSSA COLE, ANITA KELLY, KOSOKO JACKSON, and OLIVIA WAITE for a discussion of their books and the romance community as a whole in celebration of Bookstore Romance Day. This panel will be moderated by award-winning author of romance and sci-fi/fantasy, CECILIA TAN.

Contribute to Support Harvard Book Store

While payment is not required, we are suggesting a $5 contribution to support this author series, our staff, and the future of Harvard Book Store—a locally owned, independently run Cambridge institution. In addition, by ordering a copy of Count Your Lucky Stars, How to Find a Princess, Love & Other Disasters, I'm So (Not) Over You, and The Hellion's Waltz on harvard.com, you support indie bookselling and the writing community during this difficult time.

Pre-order copies of Kosoko Jackson's next book A Dash of Salt and Pepper.

About Bookstore Romance Day

Founded by bookseller Billie Bloebaum, Bookstore Romance Day is a day designed to give independent bookstores an opportunity to celebrate Romance fiction—its books, readers, and writers—and to strengthen the relationships between bookstores and the Romance community. We're thrilled to partner with indie bookstores across the country in dedicating a day to literature that transports, titillates, and always promises a happy ending. Learn more about the Bookstore Romance Day project and participating bookstores here.
