Boas, tiaras and a whole lot of pink were on display at the annual Boas & Tiaras high tea. The organization was honored to have the event hosted by local Shannon Powell Hart of “Good Morning Texas.” The guest of honor was international best selling author Nalini Sigh, there with her new book Psy-Changeling #12.
With over 100 tickets sold, excited guests had to get there early just to make sure they got a chance to sit at their table of choice. The attendees surely knew how to bring Dallas style to a historical English past time – tiaras with bling, cowboy hats and boas big as Texas pride! The crowd was able to have up and close moments with some of the best authors around. “Writing is a welcome challenge, and a personal joy,” stated author Morgan Fox.
The crowd was very excited gathered around the raffle table as they dropped their tickets in, hoping to be one of the lucky numbers called to claim one of many amazing gift bags on display. Many women, and a few men, are veterans of Boas & Tiaras. Louise Evans was very ecstatic to return for her fourth time and have her favorite authors underneath the same roof signing her books. Even the newbies seemed to smooth right into the motion of all things Boas, dedicated readers like Danielle Conley spoke about how the event brings old friends together while creating an opportunity to meet new people, and you get to bring your own sense of style to the event.
The energy powered towards the authors was not just for books, food and Q&A’s. Many were there to give back to the local community. The proceeds from the raffle and a portion of the book sales will go to Plano Family Literacy Program. If there is anything this group of readers and authors know, it is the importance of literacy within our communities. Boas & Tiaras love bling, pink and giving back words and more.
