Author Sarah Waters at the LGBT Center

Hi Everyone,

One of our new members is organizing this event. This is not an official meet up; you do not need to RSVP for it. I just wanted people aware of this opportunity to meet Sarah Waters. I will be out of town but hopefully some of us can head down to the LGBT Center and get a book signed by Sarah Waters.

Event: Sarah Waters (author of Tipping the Velvet, Fingersmith, etc.) will be at the Los Angeles LGBT center (The Village at Ed Gould Plaza) on 9/24 (6:30-10pm) for a Tribute, reading, and book signing of her 6th novel, "The Paying Guests." It will be her last night here on her U.S. book tour before she heads home to the UK.

    Hi all, I see there are about 10 people signed up for the book signing tomorrow (Sept. 24). Hopefully people will recognize each other at the event. If anyone wants to try and be more organized than that you can email the group and or post a message here. Sorry I can't be there, have fun! Sara

    Hello Ms. Vyk - yes, there certainly will be non-alcoholic drinks, too- and finger sandwiches; A British Tea Party! - drinks included in price. LAWN is an org a few of us volunteers started about 5-6 years ago...all coming from volunteering with An Evening With Women...we were dedicated to host community events -cultural, comedy, music, etc - as well encourage networking. It's billed monthly at $25, and it's well worth it with all the stuff we do - members usually get 2 tickets free to our events. And there's a portion to write-off to as it's a non-profit. If you're not a member, then you can still come to our events - and it ranges from about 10-20 each event. We're just a group of dedicated women to make our pond a little small while help fundraise for the Center and all their great services. I'll include the links here - If you ever want to join, just let me know. :-) https://www.facebook.com/centerlawn

    Hi Andi. How much to join LAWN? I will see you at the event. Looking forward to it. Will there be non-alcoholic drink options as well? Like sparkling apple cider? Thanks!

    Hello Ms. Vyk, and All! LAWN stands for Los Angeles Women's Network, and we're a group of volunteers for the Center founded about 5 years ago. We put on events/fundraisers all year long (comedy, music -we had Sophie B. Hawkins last Dec., movies). We usually have a mixer to coincide with the event; alcohol sponsored, and most are at the Village; the price ranges from $10-20 (best price in town). If you join LAWN as a member, you get to come free + 1 member. The Sarah Waters event is $15 and well worth it. For more info on LAWN, see our FB page: https://www.facebook.com/centerlawn Hope to see you at the event! Andi

    Hello All. I'm a founding member of LAWN for the Los Angeles LGBT Center, and a personal friend of Sarah Waters. I do hope you will come to this event on Weds. 9/24 at the Village in Hollywood. It's Sarah's only night in town, and you won't want to miss this event. A tribute in the theatre - a Q&A - a British mixer - all drinks included in price - and a book signing- Book Soup there to sell her books including her new one coming out this month, The Paying Guests. This event costs only $15 and all proceeds go to benefit the Center. It's a rare opportunity if you love great writing. Please do come! Thank you.
