Along the way, she discovers that there's far more to Howl—and herself—than first meets the eye.

Cupid's Café features romantic fiction. An author is chosen every month and members read at least one of the author's books before the next meeting. Members share their favorites, discuss the good, the bad, and the naughty, and have fun trying new titles in this exciting and widely read genre.

The first month of a cycle features a new or newly-discovered writer; the second month spotlights a perennial favorite; and the third month showcases our regional talent by choosing an author who lives in North Alabama.Pizza is offered at the meetings and there is a $5.00 charge if you would like to eat pizza.
