Why Are We Just Now Discovering Romance?

  • Fueled Collective 568 Broadway New York, NY, 10012 United States (map)

For hundreds of years, romance novels have been derided as fluff, degraded as 'light reading' and ignored as a literary genre. Yet they're among the biggest revenue drivers for publishers from print to Kindle.  And they're almost every woman's guilty pleasure, starring women making choices for themselves, their lovers, their children and their future 

We explore power of the female protagonist over time, the multi-billion dollar romance novel industry and ever so much more in conversation between moderator (and author) Maya Rodale (Dangerous Books for Girls), Sarah MacLean (The Washington Post), Carla Neggers, and more.
