Our Annual Holiday Party. Dress in your festive finery! Bring a guest or come alone to the annual SCBWI-BV Annual Holiday Party.
This year is a holiday crawl in downtown
. We start at Uncorked, Bryan 206 W 26th St, Bryan,
and then at 6:15, we will arrive at Caffe Capri, 222 N Main St, Bryan, TX 77803,
and have an entree. By 8:15, we will move up the street to Murphy's Law for
yummy desserts. Come to all or drop in when you can.
Share what you've achieved this year and what you hope to achieve next year. Did you read a good book this year? Let us know. :)
Let's play trivia. Brush up on your Newberys and Caldecotts. :) Do you know which books won the year you were born? Can you name all the RAs of SCBWI-BV?
Giving opportunity! (TBA) Bring one book to be given to a worthy cause.
Food and beverages will be availble for individual purchase at each step on the crawl.
