Romance in the City of Brotherly and Sisterly Love!

Philly Loves Romance is run by local authors Xio Axelrod, Roan Parrish, and Susan Scott Shelley. It is the only Author/Reader group in the Philadelphia area dedicated to promoting romance fiction. PLR meets quarterly and invites authors to read excerpts from their latest books and take Q&A. With plenty of time for socializing, this is the place to meet fans of all genres of romance. We are a diverse and inclusive group.

Guest authors represent the full spectrum of the romance genre, including contemporary, historical, fantasy, paranormal, inspirational, romantic suspense, and LGBTQ romance. Debut and best-selling authors are welcome!

Readings are typically held at the main branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia - Parkway Central Library - in Philadelphia, PA. Admission to the salons is free. Come join us!
