Article on Princeton conference

May 12, 2009

This is another one of those "lazy" posts, where I'm going to let someone else do the talking. But this is in a good cause. Hillary Rettig, "The Lifelong Activist," attended the recent conference at Princeton, "Love as the Practice of Freedom? : Romance Fiction and American Culture." Now her article is up on The Huffington Post, and it really captures the essence of the presentations, showing how romance fiction is feminist, LGBT friendly and empowering to its authors and its readers.
