Books in Bloom
Join Chicago-North Romance Writers on Saturday, April 15, for a Tea and Fashion show where we will showcase outfits inspired by book covers.
Spend an afternoon meeting up with a favorite author or getting to know a new one through our "Author Speed Dating," where the authors will shift tables and spend a few minutes talking about their books.
We will also auction off a basket filled with goodies as a door prize for a randomly drawn winner.
Books In Bloom will run from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Renaissance Chicago O'Hare Suites Hotel.
The $50 price of admission includes tea (desserts, snacks, beverages), fashion show, author meet and greet, raffle ticket, and a bag filled with swag.
A free book signing, open to the public, will follow the tea and fashion show. Check out the list of attending book authors.
Can't attend the tea and fashion show after signing up? If you cancel by April 1, you will receive a refund of $40. No refunds will be offered after April 1.
