Christmas 2017 White Elephant Book Exchange


Let’s Party Like It’s 2017!

If you have never attended one of our ACFW Christmas parties, you have missed out on great food, fellowship, and a good time. Let’s see 2017 out together with a White Elephant Book Exchange.

Book Title Tragedies

Your white elephant gift should be a book with a strange, silly, or simply BAD title. Authors and publishers try so hard to find just the right title, but their failures are often spectacularly awful.
Weird subject matter counts, too. Bring the strangest book you can find! If you have trouble finding a white elephant, let Linda Kozar know; she collects baddies all year, and she is happy to help.

Savory or Sweet

Bring your favorite dish to share, and your phone or camera to snap pictures with your friends to share.

Wear Your Worst

Wear you best worst Christmas sweater. Pictures, remember?

Guests Welcome

YES! Bring your guest (and an extra white elephant). Invite your writer friends; this is a fun way to get acquainted with our chapter.

RSVP YES

If you plan to attend, please click “going” on the White Elephant Book Exchange event on Facebook.
See you this Saturday, December 9th, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at:
7 S Chandler Creek Circle
The Woodlands, Texas 77381
NOTE: Parking situation. Please stay off the curb. Don’t park on both sides of the street. If there are no close spots, Scented Path, the street behind the park close to the house, is a perfect no-hassle alternative.
