August is Read a Romance Month at Eckhart Public Library!

Just like the name implies, in August we are encouraging people to read a romance novel – any romance novel. You can read a contemporary romance, a historical romance, something paranormal, or even something with more spice than plot.

Everybody who tries reading a romance can put their name in a drawing to win a Read a Romance Month Prize Pack. All you have to do is fill out a slip that says you read a romance novel and turn it in at the Information Desk at the Main Library. Everybody who reads a romance will also get a Read A Romance Month button.

Not sure what to read? We will have a display of romance novels on the main level of the Main Library through the entire month! If none of these novels interest you, speak to a librarian about other options from our collection.

During the month, we will also have a weekly Romance Novel Cover Contest on Facebook. Visit the library’s Facebook page each week to see an old-school romance cover, and comment with your best clever caption. Each week’s winner will receive a prize (of the chocolate variety). Even though the covers have improved quite a bit from the kitschy covers from the 1980s and 1990s, it will still be a lot of fun!

We will also have three Read a Romance Month events:

  • Author Visit—Kyra Jacobs: Hear from Fort Wayne romance author Kyra Jacobs, author of the Hometown Heroes series. She will talk about writing, and sell and sign copies of her books. Books will cost $10. Tuesday, August 4, 6:30-8 p.m., Close Community Room.
  • Romance Cover Crafts: Make crafts from the kitschy covers of 1980s and 1990s romance novels. Crafts include coasters, jewelry boxes, and more. Wednesday, August 12, 6:30-7:30 p.m., Close Community Room.
  • Romance Book Chat: Talk about romance novels! Read a romance—any romance!—and discuss it, and the genre, with other readers. Refreshments will be served. Tuesday, August 25, 6:30-7:30 p.m., Close Community Room.

Keep an eye on Charlie Chat to read more, including discussions about the romance genre, book recommendations, and more!

About Jenny

I am the Associate Director of Eckhart Public Library. My office is in the Administrative Annex, but I can often be found roaming the Eckhart Public Library Campus, performing acts of librarianship in every department! I love to read and learn about history. I'm also a huge fan of movies, TV and pop culture in general, and I love to read books of all types. Currently, I'm working my way around the romance section, with some historical fiction and graphic novels thrown in for variety! But you never know what I'm going to pick up next.
