Lisle Library District joins with local libraries to host bestselling author Jasmine Guillory Feb. 16

On Wednesday, Feb. 16, bestselling romance author Jasmine Guillory will discuss her newest novel "While We Were Dating" virtually at 7 p.m. with the Lisle Library District.

Jasmine Guillory is a writer, lawyer and New York Times bestselling author of six romance novels, including "The Wedding Date," "Royal Holiday" and "Party of Two."

"We are incredibly fortunate to have bestselling and highly revered author Jasmine Guillory speak to the Chicagoland area," said Adult Programming Librarian Xavier Duran. "With blustery weather still lingering, having an author of such rollicking and zesty books is just the right balm needed!"

NPR called Guillory's "The Proposal" "rollicking, charming, and infinitely zesty." Her work has appeared in O, The Oprah Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Bon Appetit, and Time. She lives in Oakland, California.

Guillory will be joined in conversation with author Morgan Rogers.

Both Guillory's "While We Were Dating" and Rogers' "Honey Girl" were included in NPR's list of the best books of 2021.

This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a statewide collaboration among public libraries offering high-quality events.
