Haverhill Reads Author Talk: Jenny Howe

Every year the Haverhill Public Library picks one book for a community-wide read.

Join us for an afternoon with author Jenny Howe! She’ll read from her 2023 novel, On the Plus Side, and talk about writing romance and why plus-size representation matters! Her talk will be followed by a book signing. Copies of On the Plus Side are available wherever books are sold. 

Jenny L. Howe first started scribbling stories into black-and-white composition notebooks with neon pink pens when she was in junior high and never really stopped. In college, she decided to turn her love of books into a career by pursuing a Ph.D. in literature, where she spent the next few years studying bizarre and entertaining medieval romances. Now, as a professor, she teaches courses in college writing, literature, and children’s media. When she’s not writing and teaching, Jenny spends her time buried under puzzle pieces, cross-stitching her favorite characters, and taking too many pictures of her rescue dogs, Tucker and Dale. On the Plus Side is her second adult novel.
