Documentaries are labors of love dictated by finance. Documentary filmmakers have to stop and start as financing dictates which can mean years before they share their passion with the world.
About five years ago, filmmaker Laurie Kahn approached Nora about taking part in her proposed documentary Love Between the Covers — which she envisioned as a feature-length documentary film about the powerful community of women (and some men) who read and write romance novels. You can read that vision in Laurie’s words here.
During the next few years Laurie and her crew traveled where the information took them, including a visit to Turn the Page Bookstore to film what goes on at a signing. They also spent time at the RWA conference in Anaheim in 2012, interviewing authors from Nora to Nalini Singh to Jill Shalvis to Beverly Jenkins.
Laurie has shared some clips that are in the film as well as some outtakes for your enjoyment. And it’s classic Nora in each of them.
