Writers 4 Readers – Our first event
It’s time to pass along some big news!
For the last six months, we’ve been planning a launch party to celebrate some new books we have coming up, specifically Shallow Grave, the follow up to Shallow Creek, and a new novel called Olympia. Over time, however, this party has evolved into something else entirely, and we’re finally ready to tell you all about it.
The new event is called Writers 4 Readers – Book Launch and Literacy Event, and it’s taking place in downtown Dallas on Saturday, November 8th, from 8pm to midnight. Instead of just the authors from the4threalm.com, the event will now include 10-15 other writers, artists, filmmakers and creators displaying new and old material, along with special exclusives and auction items. These are all local Dallas folks, a lot of them indie, and all of them looking to showcase the work that they’re passionate about.
In addition, we’ve joined forces with LIFT, a literacy group here in Dallas that provides literacy instruction for people who can’t read or have learning disabilities. A group of writers banding together to help a literacy group makes pretty good sense to us, and all proceeds from the event will be going to them.
Our plan is to make this an annual event, but for that to happen, we need a good first showing. We really want to impress the literacy group folks, and we need your help to make that happen. So we HIGHLY encourage anyone in the Dallas area to come to this event, which will have a mini-convention vibe to it, along with some food and drinks (my advice is to show up early for that). The money we raise from this event will go to a good cause, and what better way to spend a Saturday night than to support not only local authors and artists, but also your community?

and we’ll be sure to post more info as we get closer to the date, including the exhibitors who will be on hand and any new sponsors who have signed up. But in the meantime, please SHARE this post and TELL your friends all about what we’re trying to do. An entire community will thank you for it!
