Protecting Our Own

As we reported in June, beloved author L.A. Banks is battling cancer and the bills are piling up. Leslie has tons of fans and several of them have organized events to help support her. If you’re in NYC, head to Hue-Man Bookstore & Cafe in Harlem on Thursday July 28–that’s tomorrow!–at 6 p.m. for an auction and book signing event co-hosted by the L.A. Banks Fan Club. Those closer to Philadelphia should check out the party and silent auction being hosted by the Philly Liars Club, of which Leslie is a proud member, on Saturday August 6 at 7 p.m. at Smokey Joe’s.

If you know of any other fundraisers for authors in dire straits, please post the info in comments or send it to; we’re happy to spread the word.

    Unfortunately, e-mail about this went out Wednesday evening and I didn’t read about it until a couple of hours after it was over. Wish they’d given more advance warning, so I could at least publicize it more.

    This PW on Line received on my computer at 11am on the 28th.
