It’s the annual Author Autumn Tea where several Colorado Authors do a “show and tell,” offering their wonderful books on a perfect afternoon surrounded by cool people and delectable food. And it’s FREE. The catch: you need to RSVP … and, you can bring friends. The Holidays are coming … select the perfect gift and have it personalized—we will have books for everyone … PLUS books are the ideal gift—think kids, your friends … how about YOU? And we will have free, new books to give away.

Note: This is a private home …

Here’s what’s happening …

When: SATURDAY, October 29th

There is a gate code that will be sent to you when you register or by the author host who invited you.

The Treat: 20 authors sharing with you about their books and who they are in 30 seconds each. All books will be displayed on tables to “check-out”. Books are IDEAL gifts … for yourself, for others. All will be priced at less than what you can buy them on Amazon. Authors will be signing—some books even come with ribbons! We have books for guys, gals, and kids! And, we always have free books while they last that are donated by some of the authors. Plus, tables are laden with tasty goodies. YUMMERS!

Author Holiday Gathering—Foodies and Fun Combo @ Judith and John's Home
Dec 11 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Ho Ho Ho, Another Year Has Flown By… and we skipped last year!

It’s time for the Annual AuthorYOU Holiday Party

Join your fellow authors for fun, laughter, great food, interesting gifts, schmoozing, and networking. No need to cook, Judith will have her chef hat on, and will be providing a buffet lunch. Of course, there will be plenty of beverages to go around. Previous attendees loved having it earlier in the day—it’s December; it’s Winter Solstice approaching; the daylight is getting shorter; and who knows what the weather will be. Personally, I like being able to see clearly where my feet land in the winter months. AND … bonus … for football devotees—you can still see the afternoon games. For shoppers—go for it.



Just bring an unmarked gift to exchange in the off-the-wall Wacko Pick and Steal after lunch. If there are two in your party, bring two gifts so that everyone can leave with something. Be creative! The gifts tend to get pretty wild and fun.



DateSunday, December 11th from 1 p.m to 4:00 p.m.

Location: Judith and John’s Home: 8122 S Quatar Cir, Aurora, CO 80016

GiftsWe do an exchange–the Wacko Pick and Steal exchange to be exact; please keep your cost value to less than $20—hot items in the past: wine; nifty gadgets from Home Depot and Costco; sports stuff; movie tickets; goofy and quirky can be fun … please, no rejects from something past.

Cost$20 per person or $30 per couple
