Every year, Romance Writers of America hosts the RITA Awards to promote excellence in the romance genre by recognizing outstanding published romance novels and novellas. They will once again live-stream the awards ceremony in New York.
This year, we're we're bringing back our Watch Party in-store to give romance readers a place to gather and celebrate! Come walk the red carpet and enjoy some wine and snacks with other romance lovers, in awards ceremony fancy dress or regular bookstore attire, and root for your favorite romance novels published in 2018!
Just like a real Awards Ceremony, we're going to have FREE SWAG BAGS! Thanks to the generosity of publishers and this year's RITA finalists, we will have an assortment of books and romance-related goodies for the first attendees, given on a first-come, first-served basis, as well as additional prizes to raffle off.
