Coming to VOD today, Tuesday, July 12: LOVE BETWEEN THE COVERS
Laurie Kahn’s look at the lure of romance writing debuted at Hot Docs last year. In addition to book events, its festival circuit included DOC NYC, Los Angeles, Provincetown, Woods Hole, Sidewalk, Hot Springs Doc, Mill Valley, and St Louis, among others.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
For a publishing genre that easily outstrips all others in annual sales, romance fiction remains readily dismissed by the mainstream. Dominated by women, the billion-dollar industry has offered a space for female creators, their heroines, and consumers to thrive like no other. Laurie Kahn’s revealing film explores the vast community that has formed around romance, sharing the stories of voracious fans and prolific authors like Nora Roberts and Beverly Jenkins and demonstrating why love stories are no trivial matter.
