A Night of Romance

Join us on Tuesday, 12/6 at 7:30 PM/ET, for an evening dedicated to romance and romcoms, hosted by Zenni. Our first panel, moderated by the acclaimed author Emily Giffin (Meant to Be), includes Elissa Sussman (Funny You Should Ask), Susie Dumond (Queerly Beloved), and J. J. McAvoy (Aphrodite and the Duke), chatting about writing, inspirations, and their love for the holiday season.

Looking for fresh gift ideas? We got you covered! Sanyu Dillon, the chief marketing officer for Penguin Random House, and All Ways Black creator & influencer Cree Myles are sharing their favorite books for the giving season. Sanyu then sits down with New York Times bestselling author Curtis Sittenfeld to celebrate her highly anticipated novel, Romantic Comedy, coming 4/11/23. All participants of Holiday House will receive an exclusive gift of their own: an advance Netgalley for Romantic Comedy, along with other surprises.

The event will be broadcast via Zoom. To reserve your spot, simply order one of the featured titles from our independent bookstore partner—Quail Ridge Books (Raleigh, NC). You also have the option to purchase the inspiring memoir, Wild Ride, for yourself or as a donation to St. Jude.
