THIS JUST IN: AUTHOR PARTY! PHILADELPHIA INK: CELEBRATING AUTHORS FROM THE PHILADELPHIA AREA WHO HAVE PUBLISHED BOOKS IN 2003. Bookstore owner Larry Robins of Robins books will host a party for all local authors who have published books in 2003. Over 100 were invited, probably 25 will show up, and the public is invited to come meet the authors, buy there books and have there books signed.

Background Information:
Philadelphia is home to many fine writers or fiction, non-fiction, poetry etc. Each year I have found almost 100 writers who have published that year and we invite them to a party. Having not only written a book but to have gotten it published is a cause for celebration. It is a chance for writers to meet other writers and for the reading public to meet them as well. And what better gift then an autographed book from a writer you had the chance to talk to. Each author will present for five minutes. There will be refreshments and it's a lot of fun...

Larry adds that if you are a local writer with a published book and have not been invited you should come to the party anyway:

"If I have missed someone, I apologize, I try to be inclusive but I always miss someone. Whoever you are, please join us. "
