Join us for a lively evening with one of romance's brightest new voices, bestselling author Jasmine Guillory, as she discusses her newest novel, While We Were Dating, the modern rom-com. 

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. 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. Roger's work has been praised by O, The Oprah Magazine, and Book Riot. Both Guillory's While We Were Dating and Rogers' Honey Girl was included in NPR's list of best books of 2021.

This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a statewide collaboration between public libraries offering high-quality events. Illinois Libraries Present is committed to inclusion and accessibility. To request accommodations, please email
