During our semi-annual Planning Retreat yesterday, we got down to business, but, as you can see by the attached snapshot, laughter trumped the agenda. Judith Marshall, Sarbjit Rai, and I were not the only ones in the group laughing, we just got caught in the act by Teresa with her candid camera.
I especially like this photo, because it will be a great reminder, when I’m deep in overload, that we truly do have so much fun interacting, networking, planning, and hosting events. And this is exactly why we choose to belong to WNBA-SF, along with the fact that as a national organization our influence reaches far and wide connecting women and men to the greater literary community across the country, as well as, promoting literacy world wide as a member of the United Nations and UNICEF.
Speaking of literacy, September is National Literacy Month, so we begin our fall season of events with Zen and the Art of the Book Deal and the Great Book Giveaway. October promises lunch with a bestselling author during National Reading Group Month, and November offers members the extra benefits of Authors’ Showcase & Silent Auction, just in time for holiday gift buying.
In the next few weeks the final details of the above teaser notes will be worked out and posted as the Fall Calendar of Events on our WNBA-SF website. Click here to peruse the site and join us in promoting women and the book.
P.S. Laughing Buddha is on the wall behind the lamp - might be hard to see in such a small photo.
