Tuesday, April 27, 2021 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

04/27/2021 7:00pm 04/27/2021 8:00pm Let's Talk Books: Contemporary Romance Contemporary Romance is a subset of the Romance genre which often contains elements that date the story, and are often set in or near the time they are written. The older the book gets, the more the story or the characters become unrelatable for modern readers. Pre- 1970’s the heroines usually quit working when they married or had children, and for many of today's romance readers those characters can be hard to connect with. For this discussion we'll focus on romances written in since 1990. Not quite a book group, Let's Talk Books is a series of casual conversations about books where we meet to share descriptions of our favorite reads. Join us for your favorite genres to chat with like-minded readers. Bring a couple of recommendations to share or just show up to hear what everyone else loves! Register here to reserve your spot for the discussion. Our video chat gathering will take place in Zoom, and you’ll receive an email with login details in advance. Everyone is welcome.
