Austin SCBWI Holiday Potluck

Date(s) - 12/14/2019
6:30 pm - 10:30 pm


Join us for our wonderful Book-Themed Holiday Potluck tradition.

The party will feature book-themed food, and we’ll give prizes for your favorites. Come up with your own version of Chicken Noodle & Lou Soup or The Rockabilly Goats Cheese Dip. Pick a book and make it into food. Or bring some wine or beer to share. Austin SCBWI will take care of the soft drinks. For the dishes, prizes will be given for Most Creative, Most Book-Accurate and Most Delicious!

The party will again be at the home of Regional Advisor Samantha M Clark, and a film adaptation of a children’s book will be playing in the theater upstairs.

Please note, the party is open to SCBWI members and a guest, but not kids. As much as we love kids, this is an opportunity for you to have fun and network with fellow writers and illustrators. Also, we have two very friendly dogs who’ll be roaming around your feet for crumbs. If you’re allergic to dogs, please take medicine before you come.

Also, we’ll be collecting book donations for Women’s Storybook Project! Bring a new or almost new picture book, early reader, chapter book or middle grade novel to donate. They’re especially in need of more chapter books and middle-grade novels and would love more with diverse characters and worlds.

RSVP below (make sure you’re logged into the website) and say whether you’ll bring a sweet dish or a savory dish. (We typically have fewer savory dishes and would love more of those this year.) Austin SCBWI will provide plates, cutlery and soft drinks, but please feel free to bring wine or beer to share. Also in the RSVP, please vote for the movie you’d like to see playing in the theater.

Please note: the address will be emailed to everyone who has RSVP’d a few days before the party.

See you there!
