The Seattle Public Library, Third Place Books, and the Great Seattle Romance Writers of America present a virtual panel on the topic of bi and pan characters in romance! Alyssa Cole, Alexandria Bellefleur, Katrina Jackson, Casey McQuiston, and Rebekah Weatherspoon will take part in this discussion moderated by Olivia Waite, author of the Feminine Pursuits series.
Queer romance featuring M/M and F/F love stories is booming! But sometimes these romances are billed as lesbian or gay romance even when one of the leads is bi or pan. This discussion will delve into bi and pan characters and authors, issues of representation and erasure, and more.
This event is presented in partnership with The Greater Seattle Romance Writers of America and Third Place Books and supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation. Thanks to media sponsor The Seattle Times. This program will be recorded, captioned and posted on SPL's YouTube channel after the event.
