Romance and Chocolate at Lady Jane's Salon

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for roses&chocolate.jpgMadame Tracey Devlyn and Madame Adrienne Giordano aren't characters from that Jane Austen novel you always meant to read; they're the hosts of Lady Jane's Salon, a bi-monthly romance fiction reading series that celebrates one of the publishing industry's most popular genres.

Inspired by Lady Jane's Salon New York, Devlyn and Giordano--both of whom are romance novelists--combined their energies to develop a local version of the Salon, which features a gamut of romance writers, from newbie to well-established.

The next steamy installation is Tuesday, December 4 at 7pm at Le Chocolat du Bouchard on 129 S. Washington St. in Naperville. The featured writers are Jennifer Ann Coffeen, P.E. Calhoun, Beth Kery, and Sherrill Bodine.

While listening to tales of love and lust you can enjoy a hot chocolate, "choctail", or a dessert likely to involve the word "sinful" from the Le Chocolat du Bouchard menu (the reading is on the second floor of the chocolaterie); but feel no guilt--the suggested $5 donation goes to Celebrate Differences, a non-profit supporting individuals with disabilities. Or you may pay your admission with one gently-used romance novel.
