Every year, Steve Fried and Diane Ayres throw a party for Philadelphia authors, journalists and publishing folks. This year it’s on December 12. Here’s the invitation:
The annual holiday gathering of Philadelphia writers (as well as editors, photographers, designers and others who eke out a living in the world of words and images, or the teaching thereof) will be held on December 12 from 5:30-8:00 at Bliss Restaurant, 220 Broad Street.
There is no need to RSVP, and please feel free to bring spouses or significant others. Also, please forward this invitation to anybody else you think should be there. The more the merrier.
Thanks again to Bliss owner Christ Dhimitri, whose annual hospitality and nibbly bits are deeply appreciated.
Your hosts (and I use that term advisedly, since “hosting” this party involves nothing more than picking the date, sending out this initial email to be forwarded around, and reminding you it’s a cash bar) are Stephen Fried and Diane Ayres.
