Counting down the HOURS - anthology launch lunch

Lift a glass with authors from our SoCal communitea as we enjoy scrumptious fare in an idyllic setting in celebration of the launch of
HOURS IN PROSE & VERSE, #5 in the Omni Anthology series.

Sunday, 26 December 2021 at 11am

Shenandoah at the Arbor 
10631 Los Alamitos Blvd., Los Alamitos

Books will be for sale at a reduced rate, and at least one author will be on-hand to sign them! Click here for the restaurant's lunch menu. If interested in attending, email TeaTravellersSocietea@gmail.com and I'll include you in our reservation. I'm only expecting a handful of stalwart souls to join in, so the plan is to just order off the menu. 

The bulk of the seating is outside in their glorious garden. Let me know if you'd prefer to sit inside.
