Happy Valentine’s Day, listeners!
Love is in the air! It’s our annual romance episode, and this year, we’re reading the Slayer of Words herself: Ms. Beverly Jenkins. We read Dani’s favorite Jenkins’ novel, A Chance at Love. (Or as Mollie titled it, The Education of Jake Reed.) There are precocious children, farm animal hijinks and a marriage of convenience that ends up causing more problems than it solves. It’s basically a black historical rom-com, and we loved it.
We dig into it all, as well as sketchy Missouri hospitals, Kansas’ poor taste in mascots and our romance philosophies.
Listen in and get ready for our next episode when we speak to the Slayer herself! We get to chat with Ms. Jenkins about romance, writing and her impressive career. Any questions you want us to ask? Be sure to tweet them to us at @blackchicklit by Feb. 16.
