“The Allure of the Amish”
Friday May 9, 2014
from 10:30 – 1:30
DoubleTree Lancaster in Willow Valley (PA) - directions here
Why have Amish novels become so popular—and why right now? Valerie Weaver-Zercher, author of Thrill of the Chaste:The Allure of Amish Romance Novels will speak about the wildfire success of Amish romance fiction.
“Readable and engaging, Thrill of the Chaste studies the exploding subgenre of Amish fiction from every angle: Why is it so popular? What are readers seeking? Do these stories truly reflect the Amish? What motivates the authors? The publishers? Sometimes hard-hitting but always fair, Weaver-Zercher’s fascinating book is a must-read for anyone interested in the plain life.”
- Suzanne Woods Fisher, author of Amish fiction and host of Amish Wisdom
Valerie Weaver-Zercher is a writer and editor whose work has been published in the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Christian Science Monitor, and elsewhere.
