An Evening with Catherine Robertson

Join us for an evening with Catherine Robertson in conversation with Hannah August.

In July, Catherine will officially become a published romance writer, with the first two books in a contemporary romance series coming out worldwide on the same day. This is the first time she has had an overseas publisher. Catherine will discuss why she switched to the romance genre, which manages to be both incredibly popular (a multi-billion-dollar global industry) and incredibly undervalued as a form of literature. There are so many myths about romance. Catherine would like to bust some.

Light refreshments from 5:30pm / talk 6:00pm
