Literacy Book Signing - RWA

Romance Writers of America (RWA) is a non-profit professional organization founded in 1980 by five romance writers who met at a writers' conference in Houston the year before, and who experienced personally the deep disdain for the romance genre and its authors, from other writers and organizations.

Current membership exceeds 10,500 writers, with numerous regional chapters in the US and around the world, including several online chapters for special interests.

The first national conference was held in June 1981, and since then, the annual national conference is held every summer in different cities in the US. At every annual conference since 1990, there is a "Literacy for Life" book signing. Every year, publishers and authors donate all profits from a book signing event where hundreds of authors meet with readers to talk about reading and autograph their books.

This year alone, over $45,000.00 were raised for literacy efforts in the US, by romance readers, authors and publishers, in just over two hours. Over the years, RWA has raised over one million dollars for literacy organizations around the country.

ProLiteracy Worldwide has recognize RWA's efforts by awarding the organization its President Award this year.
