On Wednesday, May 1, East City Bookshop in Washington, DC will host a special event to celebrate the release of Taj McCoy's new book, "The Good Ones Are Taken." The event will feature a live "Drunk Romance History" discussion between McCoy and fellow author Andie J. Christopher, where they will be discussing the novel "Wild Rain" by Beverly Jenkins. All attendees will receive a copy of McCoy's new book as part of their ticket. The event is expected to draw a large crowd, with the bookshop having hosted over 26,000 attendees for previous events. COVID-19 safety measures will be in place, with masks encouraged for all in-person guests. McCoy, an Oakland-born law graduate, is known for championing diverse stories featuring Black and multiracial women, plus-size protagonists, and themes of Black love and joy. Christopher, a USA Today bestselling author, is celebrated for her sharp, witty, and sexy contemporary romance novels. This event promises to be an engaging and entertaining celebration of romance, history, and community. McCoy and Christopher will surely provide insightful commentary and lively discussion around the themes and characters of "Wild Rain." Attendees can look forward to an evening of book talk, camaraderie, and perhaps even a few cocktails as they delve into the world of romance fiction. The event is a must-attend for fans of McCoy, Christopher, and Beverly Jenkins' acclaimed work. Tickets are limited, so interested readers are encouraged to secure their spots early. The bookshop's previous events have been hugely popular, so this one is sure to sell out quickly. Readers won't want to miss this opportunity to connect with these talented authors and immerse themselves in the world of romance.
