During the event, Houston native Katherine Center shared her sixteen-year journey as an author which all started with her first novel in the sixth grade (Duran Duran fan fiction). Katherine read how she first fell in love with romance novels and romantic fiction creates a “fantastic feeling of anticipation” and “love is a form of hope” from the Author’s note in her new tenth book, Hello Stranger. Katherine Center fans also had the opportunity to participate in a Q & A and book signing with the romcom author. Center’s next book is scheduled to be published next summer on June 11, 2024 and is a connected story to her popular and beloved novel, The Bodyguard.

Publishers Weekly shared a review about Hello Stranger stating, “With a thoroughly modern millennial heroine at the helm, Center takes Sadie’s life seriously and her struggles with adulting resonate even before her face blindness sets in. Meanwhile, a dash of humor and an endearing love story make the pages fly. Readers will be hooked.” Purchase Hello Stranger at the local bookstore, Village Books, and online at
