There's Still Time To Be Apart Of The Largest Literary Event In 2007!


Greetings!

I do understand hard times, but this is going
to be the
largest literary event happening in Detroit in
a long
time.

Therefore, our online
registration
service gives YOU the option to provide the
information, reserve spots and then pay at
the door.
Instead of using the Paypal/Credit Card
option, click
on PAY AT THE DOOR. You'll get a receipt
in which you
can use when you register the day of the
event and
then have it stamped as paid at that time
for tax
purposes.
