The Greater Los Angeles Writers Society held its annual Holiday Party on December 1st in the Ray Bradbury Room of the Palms-Rancho Park Library. The occasion is an opportunity for members to get together in a purely social atmosphere, share LOTS of good food, good books, and holiday cheer. Special thanks to Lillian Todaro who managed the Pot Luck, Mike Robinson who managed the Open Mic, Neil Citrin who managed the Wrapped Book Exchange, and Tony N. Todaro who coordiated the event.

The festivities began with a terrific Pot Luck Lunch thanks to all the goodies brought by (in no particular order): Patricia K.D., Tony & Lillian Todaro, Maestro Drake, Terry Gardner, Dr. Elaine Mura, Peter Mitchell, John & Judy Weiskopf, Diana Rosen, Marcie Geffner, Larry Alger, Vibe Norstrom, Renee Michelle Carter, Mike Robinson, Mario Contreras, Leslie Ann Moore, Barbara Schnell, Avi Magid, Peggy Clay, Lee Sloca, Ed Houston and Audrey Rogers.

The attendees were treated to readings by a number of fine writers who contributed their talent to the event. A wrapped book exchange followed, complete with a lively second round of swaps between members. As some members brought more than one book, a few others who didn't bring a contribution were able to get a good title, as well, to read over the holidays. [photos by Ynot ]
