Read with Pride Northwest 2017

The Read with Pride Northwest conference, formerly known as Gay Romance Northwest (GRNW), is only 3 weeks away! It will be held at the Seattle Public Library on Saturday, November 4th from 12 pm to 6 pm. Afterwards, hop uphill to enjoy a multi-author reading event at Gay City, from 7 pm to 10 pm. Registration is required to attend panel sessions, but all are welcome to peruse the books for sale and chat up authors. If you want to pre-funk for the conference, I’ve included a list of the attending authors, as well as a link to their websites and books.

Last year, I attended for the first time, along with a co-worker buddy. And it was amazing! I love romance, and queer romance especially; so having this kind of convergence of kindred spirits and authors so close to home makes me feel super lucky. For the remainder of the month, I’m trying really hard not to buy anymore books, because I know I’m gonna splurge on books and bookish stuff at the SPL’s Friends of the Library store (and there is a coffee shop inside, whuuuuut). This year I’m arriving earlier because that table of freebie books empties out quick! Also, bring any LGBTQIA+ titles that you would like to donate to the library at Gay City. Last year they had a table accepting donations, so I’m pretty sure they will this year, too.

Gimme all your lovin’! 

Need even more love in your life? Yeah, I know, me too! Here’s a sample platter to satiate those romance hunger pains until November 4th. Stay tuned for that special moment when the panel sessions are revealed on Read with Pride Northwest‘s website! Cheers 🙂

Love-Between-the-Covers

I know I shared this last year, but it’s still a great romance documentary. Love Between the Covers features numerous writers, including Radclyffe. You can watch it via Amazon, Vudu, YouTube, and Google Play. You can also watch it for free if your library subscribes to Hoopla or has DVD copies available.
