Registration now open for March 19 romance panel

Join us Tuesday, March 19, at 2 pm, for Acquiring the Duke: The Current State of Romance in Publishing and Libraries. The event takes place at Indian Prairie Public Library (Darien).

Romance tends to be underestimated in the shuffle of collection development, readers’ advisory, and publishing–despite comprising 23% of the US fiction market. We are bringing all aspects to the forefront with our expert panel of editors, reviewers, and authors to discuss trends in romance, traditional and self-publishing, review sources, and much more.


Mary Altman, Editor at Sourcebooks Casablanca

Bobbi Dumas, freelance writer and book reviewer for several mainstream publications including Kirkus and NPR

Jennifer Prokop, book reviewer and creator of Jen Reads Romance

Amy Sandas, author

Melonie Johnson, author

Suleikha Snyder, author

Panel Moderator: Susan Maguire, Senior Editor for Collection Management and Library Outreach at Booklist
