"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 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.
