Wine, Wit & Lit is Coming!



This is an FYI about an exciting event coming up on Sunday, October 3, 2010 for anyone within striking distance of St. Louis. The fabulous Susan McBride has been the force behind it's organization (LOVE her!!) and this is the latest from her website:

I'm putting together a very cool event with some friends called "Wine, Wit, and Lit: Cocktails and Conversation with Local Authors" to benefit Casting for Recovery, a post-treatment program for breast cancer survivors. The Lone Wolf Coffee Co. in Ballwin, MO, will host, and there'll be door prizes, a "speed-dating with authors" session, wine tastings, appetizers, and eight AMAZING authors including Marilyn Brant (FRIDAY MORNINGS AT NINE), Jen Gauvain & Anne Milford (HOW NOT TO MARRY THE WRONG GUY), Sharon Shinn (GATEWAY), Angie Fox (A TALE OF TWO DEMON SLAYERS), Jody Feldman (THE SEVENTH LEVEL), Bobbi Smith (CAPTIVE PRIDE), and Susan McBride (THE COUGAR CLUB). Puddn' Head Books will sell all authors' most recent releases. Early registration is $10 per person, or it's $15 at the door. Email TheCougarClub@aol.com to save your spot!


Let me emphasize...there will be WINE tasting! Appetizers! And Prizes, too!! Not to mention lots of books and their authors, all for a really good cause ;-). Please help us spread the word.

Marilyn, I'm so glad you're coming down to the Lou to be a part of the first "Wine, Wit & Lit!" You know I mean it when I say, "You rock!" And thanks for posting the info. :-)

Edie, I'm a survivor, too. So glad to hear you're doing well. Sending lots of positive vibes to your friend in her latest fight. I hope she kicks her cancer's butt for once and for all!

Cheers,
Susan

What a great event. I wish I were close enough to attend. I'm a breast cancer surviver, so this is definitely something I'd go to. The wine, with & lit are bonuses.

I'm putting this on my group blog. I think you'll get a big crowd.

I hope the event turns out well.
