Colorado Authors’ League members are invited to join friends and peers at CAL’s annual Holiday Party on Sunday, Dec. 6, 1-4 p.m. at the BookBar at 4280 Tennyson in Denver. The party returns to the BookBar after a terrific turnout last year endorsed the wine and coffee bar that has become a familiar haunt for author signings and other literary events. The casual setting of comfortable couches and cafe tables, with a standup bar, makes it easy to mingle and meet new and old friends. Again this year, CAL will host light snacks at no charge. A cash bar features hand-picked wines, craft beers and special coffees. Street parking is easy and free.
Also returning this season will be CAL’s Children’s Book Box, designed by board member Margi Evans. We ask that attendees either bring a children’s book or purchase one from the BookBar’s children’s selections, to be donated to the Brandon House for homeless women and children. Following last year’s party, CAL delivered more than 80 books to the house, which were gratefully accepted.
