African-American romance fiction author Beverly Jenkins is one of several writers interviewed in Love Between the Covers, a new documentary to be shown at the Stratford Library on Feb. 27, at 10 a.m.

The Stratford Library will be hosting a one-time screening of the film, Love Between the Covers on Saturday, Feb. 27, at 10 a.m., in the Lovell Room. The special screening of Emmy Award-Winner Laurie Kahn’s documentary film about the global community of romance novel writers and readers is free and open to the public.

Love stories are universal. Love stories are powerful. And so are the women who write them. For three years, filmmaker Laurie Kahn followed the lives of five published romance authors and one unpublished newbie as they build their businesses, find and lose loved ones, cope with a tsunami of change in publishing and earn a living doing what they love — while empowering others to do the same. Romance is the behemoth of the publishing industry; it outsells mystery, sci-fi, and fantasy combined. Yet no filmmaker has ever taken an honest look at the amazing global community that romance writers and readers have built until now.

At the Stratford Library author Jamie Pope will introduce Love Between the Covers. Pope is an award-winning romance writer, teacher and boot buying addict who sometimes goes by the names of Sugar Jamison and Ginger Jamison. When she isn’t juggling her split personalities, readers can find her hanging out at sugarjamison.com. She now lives in New York with a naughty cat and too many romance novels.

The documentary runs 84 minutes with a discussion following. Jamie Pope will also have autographed copies of her books for purchase. Light refreshments will be served.
