CdHIxdLW0AAmGENRomance Writers of America® were at the Festival of Books again in 2016!

LARA, OCCRWA and RWA San Diego joined forces to bring romance to the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books.

Our booth was near the LA Times stage, a very convenient location to visit with our authors/members.

Many of our authors are New York Times and USA Today best sellers, and all of them believe in Happily Ever After!

In addition to meeting our signing authors and volunteers, visitors had the chance to win books from many of our authors. We also had a small romance bookstore, with proceeds to fund future booths at the festival.

There were several scheduled events of note to the romance community.

Here’s the schedule of signing authors:
