UNSUITABLE #16: ‘Colin Firth in Clingy Pants’: The Romance Appeal of Pride & Prejudice

A Conversation with with Sabrina Jeffries

UNSUITABLE is an events series that engages students and members of the Durham community in a discussion of women’s interests and popular fiction. It is run in conjunction with “Publishing & Marketing Popular Fiction: A Case Study of the Romance Novel” course at Duke University. This ‘UNSUITABLE’ discussion is with Sabrina Jeffries, New York Times bestselling novelist.

Sabrina Jeffries is the New York Times bestselling author of over 50 novels and works of short fiction (some written under the pseudonyms Deborah Martin and Deborah Nicholas). Whatever time not spent writing in a coffee-fueled haze is spent traveling with her husband and adult autistic son or indulging in one of her passions—jigsaw puzzles, chocolate, and music. With over 9 million books in print in over 20 languages, the North Carolina author never regrets tossing aside a budding career in academics (she has a Ph.D. in English literature) for the sheer joy of writing fun fiction, and hopes that one day a book of hers will end up saving the world.

All UNSUITABLE events are free and open to the public.
