Private Booksigning

For those attending Buns & Roses on October 22, 2017, we will host a private booksigning following the tea in the ballroom of the Renaissance Hotel.
 
Barnes & Noble will be on hand throughout the event to sell books written by our host authors, with a percentage of the net sales benefitting the Richardson Adult Literacy Center. Autographed books make wonderful stocking stuffers and gifts!

While we do not mind if you have a special book that you would like to bring in to be signed, Buns & Roses is a fundraising event and we receive a percentage of book sales.
 
We appreciate your support of the event.

MYSTERY BEAR BOXES
 
The Buns & Roses Bears are a much-anticipated aspect of the event and help us raise funds for literacy programs. Each year’s bear is uniquely dressed. The bears are tucked away in white boxes until they are unveiled near the end of the event. Attendees who want one of the limited edition bears frantically wave a $20 bill to get the attention of those walking through the room with the white boxes (some contain extra surprises). For those who want to be guaranteed a bear, you can pre-purchase a bear online for $30 once ticket sales open in June. You will receive a voucher when you check-in at the event and be handed your bear box before others are sold

Mania, fun, and excitement abound as the bears are adopted. Those hoping to obtain a bear at the event should bring $20 cash to hold up during the Bear Adoption. 

Our special thanks to our “bear-y” good friends, Cynthia Benson, who designs our bears, and Joan Conner, who sews the bear costumes. And our appreciation to Cynthia and Steve Benson for donating the bears and their attire.
