About

This group focuses on the genre everybody loves to hate: the popular romance. Everyone is welcome from the most casual romance reader to the more dedicated romance aficionados!


From Hallmark and Disney movies to chick lit and erotica, we will be discussing all the interesting questions: is popular romance feminist? Can queer theory apply to romance? Why are readers fascinated by male predators? Are fat heroines desirable? All these and much more will be examined, questioned and potentially answered, in our free, helpful, and fun reading group sessions.
