Offbeat Ada's: fantasies and realities of feminist romance novels

Tue, May 8, 2018 from 6pm - 9pm

This event has passed.


Offbeat Bride author Ariel Meadow Stallings hosts a discussion with local writer Jasmine Silvera about the rise of the feminist romance novel and Jasmine's new book, Dancer's Flame. The authors will explore ways the genre's centering of relationships and female pleasure is evolving, judgments about the genre (does enjoying romance make you a "bad feminist"?), and how the "diversity problem" in publishing determines who gets a happy ever after.

About the author:

Jasmine Silvera spent her impressionable years sneaking "kissing books" between comics and fantasy movies. She's been mixing them up in her writing ever since. A California native, she fell in love with Seattle while attending the Clarion West Writers Workshop and never left. Death's Dancer, the first book in the fantasy romance Grace Bloods series, was published in 2016.
