Romance, Then and Now

Carrie Sessarego, geekgirlinlove.com blogger, will talk about the history of romance as a genre, from the medieval era in which “romances” were adventure stories, to today when romance novels are a billion dollar industry. We’ll talk about how romance changed from the 1970’s to today and how different social movements affect the genre. Finally, we’ll discuss the many subgenres that exist, including contemporary, science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, and historical! Handouts will include a list of book recommendations from Jane Austen to current authors.

Taylor’s illustrations have been published within the original work in a limited edition run from the I Street Press. She and Carrie Sessarego will discuss the lasting impact of the book, the process of illustrating the novel, and the public perception of this iconic story it.
