A long time ago, when I told my friends about some neat event I attended, they always replied "Why didn't you tell us about that?" So, I created WelchEvents -- a mailing list that highlights free and inexpensive events from around Los Angeles. I check the event calendars of museums, organizations, parks and cities to find events that interest me. I might not get to every event, but everything I post is something I migth like to attend.

If you or your oganization has free/inexpenseive/family-friendly events you would like to share, email them to me at myword@welchwrite.com.
You can get WelchEvent updates directly to your email Inbox with a FREE subscription to the WelchEvents Mailing list. I also regularly post events here on the My Word blog.

If youa re already a subscriber to WelchEvents, and find it useful, please consider a donation to help defray the costs of researching and posting the events. You can donate directly using this PayPal button.

Signing in Rancho Santa Margarita

Our reading in the Rancho Santa Margarita Borders turned into a real family affair with the arrival of contributor Morrey McElroy's mother and sisters-in-law. How fun it was to get to rave over someone's work to people who were truly supportive of the arts.

It was also nice to see Nancy, Elliot and Juliana Lefko who turned the long drive into a spontaneous overnight trip and Shar and Rick Gundzik who made time in their way-too-busy schedule to catch the show. The Rancho Santa Margarita store was a great place to host a reading. They had us set up right in front of the Children's sections so some folks listened in on the sly as their kids flipped through picture books. Others stopped in before the presentation to say they're so busy "juggling" their kids, careers and marriages they couldn't stay for the reading. But they did buy books!
