Writers' Bash for L.A. Banks
Saturday, August 6, 2011 at 7:00 PM (EDT)
The Liars Club is sad to report that our dear friend Leslie lost her battle with cancer and passed away on August 2nd. Please join us at the Writers' Bash to celebrate her life, her laughter, and her hugs. All funds will now go toward her family’s needs.
The Writers' Bash is a benefit for New York Times bestselling author and Philadelphia native L.A. Banks. Come out and enjoy $2 beers, $3 wines, great music and tasty munchies. If you are a writer, you must be at this event. Meet bestselling authors and bid on great silent auction items such as manuscript critiques by leading editors and literary agents. But most of all, just be there. Why? Because our friend Leslie "L.A." Banks, the woman who introduced President Obama when he came to Philadelphia to speak out for healthcare, fought her own healthcare battle. And by spending just a little at this event, we can all help Leslie's family a lot.
