Get You Some Sugar

Liberty, Gage, Churchill, Hardy—these are the names of which romance novels are made. But with Lisa Kleypas' latest, Sugar Daddy, the reliance on All My Children-worthy handles might be the only similarity to traditional motifs of the genre. Oh sure, Sugar Daddy has the naughty bits and the good-girl-gettin'-some themes, but it also centers around Liberty Jones, a young piece of trailer-park trash whose story is as much one of working-class struggle as it is between-the-sheets snuggle. Catch Kleypas as she discusses this and other motifs from her latest 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Waldenbooks, 1101 Melbourne Road in Hurst. This event is free, which is good, because we all know true love ain’t. Call 817-589-1021.
Thu., March 15, 6:30 p.m.
