    If you've never been to Habits Gastropub, it's a nice pub with the usual delicious pub food and a staggering array of drinks, LOL. I look forward to a wonderful evening of local authors after the Word On The Street festival!

    Hi Everyone,

    This is a friendly FYI... I do not see anyone has stepped up or volunteered to "host" this event. If something would like to volunteer to be a focal point in gathering everyone around a table and steer the group at the event let me know and I will delegate them as host. If no-one steps up... then please realize this is a independent and open event and it will be upto you to organize someone to go with and your agenda/activities at the event will be upto you.
