Join us for dinner with guest author Alexandra Allred. Alex is a local author who will be joining us in person. I spent some time talking with her at Readers 'n 'ritas. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. I can't wait for you to meet her. As a bonus, it's her birthday so there will be cake...yum!

Alexandra Powe Allred graduated from Texas A&M University with a B.A. in History, saying, "As everyone knows, once you get a degree in history, all you can really do is teach or write. I'm just doing what I can!"
As the daughter of a (now retired) U.S. Diplomat, Allred traveled all over the United States and around the world. Her writing career began before graduation with several pieces on bi-lingual education with national education publications. But the real stories began while living as a youth in Moscow, Russia. Under a communist regime, imagination and the ability to create stories was the very best way to beat boredom (and the freezing cold!).

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
