Holiday Event for Writers

 I just received an announcement that I'm sure will be of interest:

Next week the San Francisco Chapter of the Women's National Book Association is hosting its annual holiday party.

Here are the details as posted on their website:
Tuesday, December 17, 5:30-8:00 pm
WNBA-SF members are invited to our annual holiday bash at the home of literary rock stars Michael Larsen and Elizabeth Pomada.
This is a special pot luck, finger food celebration.

Donation: Please bring an unwrapped book for children, ages 0-5, to support our early literacy program for homeless Mothers and children: classic children’s picture books and board books in English and Spanish.

RSVP and let us know what holiday treat you plan to bring. Once you fill out the form, you’ll receive an email with the address and directions: http://wnba-sfchapter.org/annual-wnba-sf-holiday-party/

PLUS: You can win a copy of Rebecca Eaton's memoir, Making Masterpiece! The first five emailers who reply to the Winter Edition of Bookwoman will receive a free copy. But you won't receive a copy of Bookwoman if you've not renewed your WNBA membership. This is the last week to renew: http://wnba-sfchapter.org/membership/annual/
