We had an awesome Literacy event meeting and had the wonderful Brenda Novak speak all day long! There were baskets and items for just about any taste ranging from Kindles (two) and Four Day Comic Con passes to baskets with books, chocolate and booze (and much more) :). It was a great meeting and raised a lot of money for San Diego Literacy programs. Make sure to mark it on your new calendars to join us next year!
And we had some member GREAT news!
