It's almost Valentine's Day 2020, and that means you have two changes to hear Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 5 authors and editor Rachel Kramer Bussel LIVE as part of our book tour! We will be in Chicago February 13 at 7 pm at bookstore Women and Children First (Andersonville neighborhood) and in Los Angeles February 14 (Valentine's Day!) at 7:30 at Skylight Books (Los Feliz neighborhood). No RSVP is necessary and both are open to the public. We've included the Facebook links below if you'd like to share these events with anyone.
Both events have amazing lineups and are free and open to all genders and Rachel Kramer Bussel will be giving out free holographic stickers (see below) while supplies last as well as giveaways from our sponsors überlube and Le Wand. Then in the fall, on September 12, we head south to Decatur, Georgia for another amazing reading at bookstore Charis Books & More. Can't join us? Tell your friends to come! And keep your eyes peeled because we'll be announcing a July 2020 event in London (UK) soon!
