"Readers for Life" Literacy Autographing

Join Kristin Cast at the "Readers for Life" Literacy Autographing, hundreds of romance authors meet with and sign books for fans in this two-hour event, with the proceeds from book sales going to literacy organizations.  

Kristin will be signing Amber Smoke and Scarlet Rain - books one and two of her new series, The Escaped.

In 2015, Romance Writers of America raised more than $48,000 to benefit literacy programs — bringing our total donations since 1990 to $961,300. Help RWA hit our $1 million goal for literacy donations!

The 2016 Literacy Autographing event will be July 13, 2016, at the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina, San Diego, California. The event will feature over 450 romance authors who will be autographing their latest works. Authors who are anticipated to participate include Nora Roberts and Sylvia Day.
