CRASH-STOP-DRAFT-Front CoverIs there anything better than an event on Valentine’s Day with readings from the Queen of Romance, Karin Kallmaker, and little ole me? How about adding a local wine maker and local chocolatier?

As Karin Kallmaker says, “Skip the tense dinner in an overcrowded restaurant. Wine, chocolate, and romance on Valentine’s Day in a bookstore with other women! Awesome, right?”

The event will be at Laurel Book Store on Thursday, February 14, 2013 at 6:30pm. They are located at 4100 MacArthur Blvd., Oakland, CA 94619. Check ’em out on Facebook and view the Facebook Event Invite!

There will be Barlovento Chocolate and Roland Rosario wines there to share the V-Day love with us at Laurel Bookstore. Festivities start around 6:30 and will include readings by Karin Kallmaker and Mary Griggs. Meeting, greeting, flirting & schmoozing and maybe some true life or mostly true life tales told. Singles, couples and undecideds are welcome.

Wine, Chocolate & Romance, what’s not to love?
