BUNS & ROSES TEA 2013
This was the 8th annual Buns & Roses Tea. For eight years the Richardson Adult Literacy Center puts on a tea to raise money for adult literacy in North Texas. Last year, they had 600 people in the program! Many of them are women. I have attended every year and for the past two years sponsored a table. For all but one year, both my daughters have attended, too. We have such fun! An afternoon meeting and talking with authors, talking about books, reading and romance, buying mystery boxes with dressed-up teddy bears, (this year’s was Robin Hood!) and getting to buy new books, which the authors happily sign. This year my wonderful friend and fan, Melissa got to join us! The pictures below are from Melissa!
That’s author Candace Havens up at the podium. She has served as our lovely and hysterically funny emcee every year of the tea. See the lady in the wonderfully big hat? That’s author Elizabeth Essex. The hat was even more fabulous from the front! Lots of people had hats this year. I wish I looked good in one. I’d love to wear one to the tea!
