In this webinar, recorded July 16 2020, romance writers Adriana Herrera, author of the Dreamers series and Finding Joy: A Gay Romance, and Alexis Daria, author of the forthcoming You Had Me at Hola, discuss their work and their publication journeys.

“Herrera is writing some of my favorite Afro-Latinx characters and giving us beautiful love stories along the way.” -Elizabeth Acevedo, National Book Award Winner;

“Daria breathes effortless life into a cast of messy, loving, talented, and downright hilarious characters readers will adore. A sense of Latinx culture and pride exudes from every page, elevating an already entertaining story. Romance fans won’t want to miss this.”—Publishers Weekly
