ONLINE: A Bookish Affair

A Romance Genre Book Group

Welcome to LOPL’s newest book group, A Bookish Affair! Open to all devotees of romance and happily-ever-afters. We will read widely in the genre, focusing on diverse voices and including every kind of love story. Be prepared to feel the love and expand your heart. 

Starting in May 2020, we moved online! Registration is required. And while you wait for the next book club, why not give our podcast a try?
