Forum for Scholars and Publics (011 Old Chem)
4:40 p.m. - 5:55 p.m.
“UNSUITABLE” is an events series that engages students and members of the Durham community in a discussion of women’s interests and popular fiction. It is run in conjunction with “The Romance Novel” course at Duke University and is co-sponsored by the Forum for Scholars and Publics, John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute, The Kenan Institute for Ethics and Trinity College of Arts & Sciences.
New York Times, Washington Post & USA Today bestseller Sarah MacLean is the author of historical romance novels that have been translated into more than twenty languages. Sarah is a leading advocate for the romance genre, speaking widely on its place at the nexus of gender and cultural studies. She is the author of a monthly column celebrating the best of the genre for the Washington Post. Her work in support of romance and the women who read it earned her a place on Jezebel.com's Sheroes list of 2014 and led Entertainment Weekly to call her "gracefully furious." Sarah lives in New York City with her husband and daughter.
(A book signing at Barnes & Noble, Cary, NC, follows this event.)
All “UNSUITABLE” events are free and open to the public.
