An Evening with Jasmine Guillory

An evening with Jasmine Guillory

Illinois Libraries Present celebrates February and Valentines with a virtual visit with a romance author.

Wednesday, February 16, at 7pm.
Virtual event on Zoom. Register.

Join us for a lively evening with one of romance’s brightest new voices, bestselling author Jasmine Guillory, as she discusses her newest novel, While We Were Dating, and the modern rom-com. This program will take place online on Zoom. 

Jasmine Guillory is a writer, lawyer and New York Times bestselling author of six romance novels, including The Wedding Date, Royal Holiday and Party of Two. NPR called Guillory’s The Proposal “rollicking, charming, and infinitely zesty.” Her work has appeared in O, The Oprah Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Bon Appetit, and Time. She lives in Oakland, California.

Guillory will be joined in conversation with author Morgan Rogers. Rogers’ work has been praised by O, The Oprah Magazine and Book Riot. Both Guillory’s While We Were Dating and Rogers’ Honey Girl were included in NPR’s list of the best books of 2021.

Everyone who registers will receive an email after the event with a link to the recording, which will be available for 14 days.

This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a statewide collaboration among public libraries offering high-quality events.

Masks in library

Masks must be worn in the library again, in keeping with the statewide mandate that began on Aug. 30. If you don’t have one with you, masks are available at the main desk.

Curbside service is still available for anyone who doesn’t want to come inside. Curbside also works for most printing and faxing, too.
