Tabulating the totals from the event posted on Facebook with the onsite registration, and removing any redundancies, the total number of people attending the reading is 25. The total is a little over double the number we've boasted on one of our reading, which until then had the most number in attendance.
To be honest, we're a little nervous to cater to so many people and are hoping that not only we, but the event delivers and brings some of them back again if not to attend the readings, then at least the book club and other events we have on the horizon.
Meanwhile, we're always on the look out for writers and the event announcement and alliance with The Paper Microphone has brought on a member surge into the Lounge. However, we're still looking for further material to present at the reading so as a reminder: the deadline's March 12 for sending in material for consideration.
Fingers crossed, people! Fingers crossed...
