Bookstore Romance Day

Event date:

Event address: 
Online

Last year's Bookstore Romance Day was a blast! There were books, there were kittens, Fabio was there, we got to hang out with Deb Jannerson...it was amazing! Things are going to look a bit different for BRD this year, but we are still going to have a great time!

Virtual Bookstore Romance Day is packed full of exciting events! A diverse array of voices in several different romance genres will be speaking all day in a slate that is definitely going to blow up your TBR. Even just looking at the schedule has me swooning and I haven't had the chance to hear most of these authors speak yet! You can find a full schedule of official Bookstore Romance Day events below. *Some events require registration while others will be visible on the Bookstore Romance Day YouTube channel.

But what is CHB doing for Bookstore Romance Day? Well, I for one, will be dropping in on all of these awesome virtual events! But mostly because this year's Bookstore Romance Day ambassador is Meg Cabot and I cannot believe I have never read the absolute iconic classic The Princess Diaries (which turns 20 years old this year!), Victoria and I will be reading along together Twitter. You can follow along with us - I'll be under the bookstore's handle, @chbbookstore, and Victoria tweets @victoriousone92. We'll be chatting about The Princess Diaries and all things romance. Follow along with us and jump in - we want to hear what you love about love stories!
