If you love to read romance and women's fiction (and, really, what mom doesn't?) here's a chance for you to snap up some terrific titles, meet their talented authors, and support a great cause. The New England Chapter of the Romance Writers of America is hosting its annual "Book Fair for Literacy" during the group's annual conference at the Burlington Marriott this month. At the fair, the part of the conference open to the public, you'll be able to meet and get books signed by dozens of authors, including best-sellers like Zoe Archer, Marie Force, Loretta Chase, conference guest of honor Julia Quinn, and more. The RWA is a non-profit organization that supports new writers seriously pursuing careers as writers of romance and women's fiction as well as writers established in the field. A portion of the proceeds from the book fair will be donated to the Massachusetts Literary Foundation. Sat., April 27, 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. Older teens and adults. Free. Burlington Marriott Hotel, Rte. 3A and Burlington Mall Rd, Burlington. www.necrwa.org
