Love Between the Covers

By: PJ fiala

This past two Saturdays we had showings of the fabulous Documentary, Love Between the Covers by the fabulous Laurie Kahn.  Laurie and her film crew followed several fabulous romance authors and their fans over the course of a couple of years, to see what life it like for romance authors.  To showcase how the fans react to meeting their favorite authors.  To emphasize that some of our most prolific authors are doctors, lawyers, physicists, engineers, and, well, name a profession and there is a romance author in that field.

Romance fans are the same.   Pick a field, any field, and there is a romance fan in that field.  Sometimes shunned, sometimes scoffed at, but these fans are loyal and dedicated to their books and authors.

If you get the chance to see this movie, please take the opportunity.  It’s heartwarming, interesting and eye opening.  I’ve included some pictures from the Green Bay showing.  I took them at the beginning and then got busy, but we had a nice afternoon and got to see a lovely movie.
