Just what is the AWW LitSalon? It's a new program that is a fantastic, fun way to enjoy an afternoon with fellow literature lovers, hob-nob with a celebrated author, and support Antioch Writers' Workshop... all at once! And get a tax deduction, too! Our goal is to hold three or four AWW LitSalons, on various literary topics and in various settings in the Greater Miami Valley, each year.
What: Join literature lovers at the next AWW LitSalon to celebrate writing and books in general and to meet with Donna MacMeans, author of seductively witty historical romances, including The Casanova Code, Redeeming the Rogue and more. Learn more about Donna on her website, www.donnamacmeans.com. After you've mingled and enjoyed wine, beer, other beverages and hors d'ouevres, Donna will share the insights, imagination and inspiration that enables her to be an accountant by day and, as she puts it, "rip off the green eye shades" and write fun, witty romance the rest of her time.
Donna's books--perfect for Valentine's Day gift-giving!--will be available for sale, and she'll be glad to autograph copies for you. We'll have a silent auction of Valentine-worthy goodies and books, too! Plenty of time for asking questions of this romance writing master... and for meeting new friends!
When: Sunday, February 9, 2014, 4-7 p.m.
Where: Blush Boudoir Photography, 120 N. St. Clair Street, Dayton, Ohio 45402. This business is owned by Tracy Malott and Bill Pote, AWW former board member, founder of DaytonMetro.com, and current chair of the AWW Marketing and Programming Committee. While you won't have to have your photo taken (at least not in a blush-inducing way), you will enjoy the ambiance of this perfect setting for a Valentine's themed LitSalon, a beautifully restored 1830s cottage in downtown Dayton!
Cost: $35 per couple or $20 per individual. Limited to a total of 24 individuals. ALL fees go to support scholarships as well as the Young Writers and other programs of the Antioch Writers' Workshop. FIFTY PERCENT of cost is tax deductible; participants will receive a letter stating donation amount.
