Neighborhood Lunch

Happy Summer!

We admit to being in the full swing of things this summer; we are traveling, visiting family and friends, and spending time outdoors. And of course reading! All of this is a long way of saying that our blog will be taking a little bit of a vacation as well. We hope all of our members are doing wonderful things and if any happen to be book related, please drop a note to Jessica Napp  so that we can share your news with the rest of the WNBA-NYC family.

We do have one official WNBA-NYC event coming up later this month and we do hope you will be able to attend. Our July Neighborhood lunch with be held in the Flatiron neighborhood at a delightful Lebanese place called Almayassa ) and this lunch will also have a special guest of honor, Carin Siegfried! Carin used to be a part of the NYC Chapter before life, love, and career relocated her to Charlotte, NC. While there, she started the Charlotte chapter of the WNBA and last month, at our annual meeting in Detroit, was named National President of the WNBA. Did we mention she is also a published author as well?

We will be meeting at Almayassa on Tuesday, July 22nd, at 12:30 PM, located at 24 East 21st Street (between Broadway & Park Ave.)

Please RSVP by July 18th to and come meet Carin (if you do not know her already).
