Romance Book Drive and Sale

Updated: Oct 31, 2018


RoL is having our Annual Romance Sale on Saturday, November 3rd from 10-5p!

For every romance book you bring in your name will be entered in a drawing for a special prize of books, Lula cash, and goodies from local and independent businesses!

Or, if you want to keep all of your romance (more power to you), share this event on facebook, or mark yourself as going to be entered into the give-away. (fb event) Or, send us your email and we'll sign you up to our newsletter so you never miss our classes and events.

This year Dead Things by Sarah, LuLaRoe Too Fancy Sisters, and local poet, Annie Baldwin, will there as well!!

Sarah makes one of a kind baubles in bone, bead & fur with vintage elements. Feminine pieces with grit.

And there's about nothing more cozy and comfortable than LulaRoe cotton, a cup of tea, and a good book. Deana and Savannah have a stellar selection and can help you with all your Lula needs.

Annie Baldwin is an improvisational, spoken word artist fusing her poetry with jazz and blues music, and letting it linger wherever she takes up space.  She knows good poetry stays authentic, asks questions, and finds hilarity in the absurd. A guerilla poet, Annie performs with musicians all over the midwest and leaves her typewritten poems and zines in unexpected places from coffee shops to bus stops to graffiti on bathroom stalls.

We're really excited about this year's romance event, so whether ripped bodices or vampires are your jam, we've got you covered from historical to contemporary, to queer, harlequin, erotica, paranormal, gothic, suspense, regency, and more! We'll be brewing Peaceful Parlour's herbal Romance Tea all day to give our ambiance that je ne sais quoi.

Peaceful Parlour is an independent tea shop in Geneva located on 3rd Street; they provide hand-blended, organic teas as well as artisanal gifts and tarot readings.

Please drop off books during our Community Hours Monday through Friday from noon-5p, however, we're always happy to make appointments as well.

*We're a small space, so we cannot house all of our collections in the shop at all times, so from time to time we like to have special sales dedicated to these specific genres. This is our Romance Sale.

We hope to see you there!


And Happy Reading!!
