The Northeastern Readers' Advisory Round Table studies ROMANCE Arc#3: Speculative Romance.

(Note: This will be Virtual Meeting sponsored by a member library. Members will recieve a link to sign-up via our Google Group, anyone else who is interested should email Leane at rapotential@gmail.com)

We are studying Romance over the first 5 months of 2022. This month we are delving into Speculative Romance.  In January 2022, we studied Contemporary Romance, and in March we studied Religious/Gentle Romance.

Everyone reads the benchmark: Kit Rocha’s Deal with the Devil: #1 Mercenary Librarians (2020)

Please also read a Choice title in this category either from the suggested lists below on our blog, or one that you choose yourself; and then post a review on our blog under Submit Choice Titles. Other genre terms used within the broader term Speculative are Fantasy, Alternative Reality, Paranormal, SF or Futuristic, and Time Travel Romance.

For appeal, please focus especially on Tone, Character, and Setting.

See NE RA RT BLOG for more information and list of Resources.

Meeting every other month, the NE RA RT reads from one genre--and then discusses the appeal of that genre with each other emphasizing the building of a skill set of appeal categories and familiarity of genre particulars. They cover a different genre every meeting, allowing each of the participants to be introduced to the discipline of reading for appeal, as well as an initiation to broad genre categories. Everyone participating will be able to share analysis of titles and authors in unfamiliar genres that will stretch their capacity as readers' advisors.  The discussion leader is Leane Ellis (rapotential@gmail.com).
