Love and Literature: A Panel on Romance at the Boston Public Library

February 28, 2017 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Come join authors ELOISA JAMES, LAUREN WILLIG, and SARAH MACLEAN at the Boston Public Library for this Romance Fiction Panel.

Eloisa James, author of Seven Minutes in Heaven, is a Shakespeare professor at Fordham University and a bestselling author of historical romance novels. She’s also the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.

Lauren Willig, author of The Other Daughter, is the bestselling writer of a number of historical fiction novels. Her books have been translated into over a dozen languages, awarded the RITA, Booksellers’ Best, and Golden Leaf Awards, and chosen for the American Library Association’s annual list of the best genre fiction.

Sarah MacLean, author of A Scot in the Dark, is the bestselling writer of historical romance novels that have been translated into more than twenty languages and the winner of back-to-back RITA Awards for Historical Romance from the Romance Writers of America. MacLean is a leading advocate for the romance genre, speaking widely on its place at the nexus of gender and cultural studies.

Panel moderator CAROLINE LINDEN, author of Six Degrees of Scandal, earned a math degree from Harvard University and wrote computer code before turning to writing historical romance.
