'Love Between The Covers'

The romance novel genre is usually portrayed as trivial and predictable. But the readers and writers of the billion dollar industry see it differently—for them it’s a community filled with empowering stories and complex heroines.

The documentary "Love Between the Covers" explores the world of literary romance through stories written by, for, and about women.

Host Frank Stasio talks with the documentary’s director Laurie Kahn about the history of love literature, and Jennifer Lohmann, romance fiction writer and adult services manager at the Durham County Library. 

"Love Between the Covers" will be screened at the Durham County Library on Saturday, Jan. 9 at 3 p.m. followed by a panel discussion.

Charlie Shelton-Ormond is a podcast producer for WUNC.
Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
