Bookstore Romance Day

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 hope you have enjoyed some of our Bookstore Romance Month events - we still have a couple more events to come, and all the others are recorded!

We won't be in the store on the official Bookstore Romance DAY, but we encourage you to enjoy some of the national online programming brought to everyone by Bookstore Romance Day.
