Hello, my fellow Helpless Romantics! I have some exciting news for all of the 50 Shades of Grey fans. This upcoming Valentine’s Day you can join other 50 Shades fans at the 50 Shades of Romance Conference in Seattle, Washington, a three-day 50 Shades event from Feb. 13-15th.
As we all know, the 50 Shades trilogy takes place in Seattle, so it’s only perfect that this event is being held there. Host Maria Stefanopoulos, a huge 50 Shades fan, has arranged for an exclusive private screening of the 50 Shades movie, followed by a panel discussion with 50 Shades expert, Marc Shapiro (best-selling NY Times author of the EL James, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan biographies), Tish Beaty, the Writers Coffee House Publishing editor who acquired the book and is now a literary agent, and Lori Perkins, author of 50 Writers on 50 Shades of Grey and publisher of Riverdale Avenue Books.
The 50 Shades of Romance conference will feature various activities and workshops from pole dancing classes to pajama parties along with 15 of your favorite romantic authors. Authors include New York Times and USA Today best selling author Shayla Black and New York Times best selling author, Lisa Renee Jones, among others.
Conference creator Maria Stefanopoulos stated “The reason I started this event is because I think that 50 Shades of Grey is the GREATEST romance novel of all time! And it would be incredible to get all the fans together to enjoy the highly anticipated film with some amazing romantic novelists. It’s sort of like a giant girl’s night except it’s for the weekend and men are invited.”
