First: Are you in or around Connecticut? Mark 27 February at 12 noon and head on over to scenic and ebullient Fairfield, CT, for the Romance Revealed Workshop at the Fairfield Public Library. I’ll be on a panel talking about romance with Toni Andrews and Kristan Higgins. I’ll be the one trying not to squee like a fangirl.
The library event does require registration. For more information you can contact the Fairfield Public Library at 203-256-3160.
I hope you’ll come – library programs are awesome.
If that’s too far away, I recently did an interview with Scott Farrell, a very smart and interesting gentleman who hosts a website and podcast called Chivalry Today and the podcast is online now at: Episode 38: Ideology of Chivalry. My part starts at about 54:50 into the hour and a quarter, but the first 50 minutes with Prof. Richard Kaeuper is all about religion, chivalry, and the role the church played in the development of chivalry. I’m talking about heroes, heroines, and codes of conduct, and what role chivalry plays in romance novels written today and back in the day.
Scott himself deserves some mad props because the poor man had to reschedule me multiple times due to my neverending cold, loss of voice, and tango with pneumonia. Thanks for the interview, Scott, and for your chivalrous patience. If you’re a medieval writer or history buff, his site is really well done.
