GHYM - The Necessary Details

Girl, Have You Read is a celebration of Black love in romance novels. We created the site because we felt like there was a gap – something missing in terms of the representation that portrayals of Black people in relationships with each other deserve. It was not, is not, and never will be about the exclusion of other relationships – it’s about a specific focus.

That’s where Girl, Have You Met? (GHYM) comes in.

We want to connect readers with authors of black romance. GHYM is a signing event – an opportunity to talk with authors, take some pictures, have some fun, and of course… buy some books!

This signing mixer will take place on Saturday, April 4th, 2020, at the Lumiere Casino/Hotel atrium in St. Louis, MO  from 11am to 4pm. There is parking on-site.

The cost to attend the event is $20, which includes a (very cute) tee shirt, a tote bag to carry your books, and other swag! You’ll also be eligible for giveaways of some very nice prizes.
