This panel, proudly presented by The Margaret Mitchell House and Avon Books, features five of the most beloved, bestselling authors in the historical romance genre: Lenora Bell, Lorraine Heath, Beverly Jenkins, Cathy Maxwell, Megan Frampton, and Julia Quinn, in conversation with Avon Impulse author and former communications specialist, Charis Michaels. Romance is reputedly an escapist form of entertainment, but since the 1970s, the genre has evolved with its readership, moving beyond heaving bosoms to reflect the plight of its female protagonists, in every era, striving towards personal empowerment and self-fulfillment. Historical romance is rooted in the past, but the messages its authors have to impart very much resonate in the modern day. Join us for a scintillating discussion of the state of female affairs, then and now.
