Preliminary results are in!
Dorothy Parker is going to be a busy lady on Friday, February 28, 2014. So far, the majority of Stay Home and Read a Book Ball celebrants have selected this witty wisecracker as their desired guest for this most highly anticipated “non-event”. Runner ups are Edgar Allan Poe, Langston Hughes, Homer, and Phillis Wheatley.
We have also received a number of write-in Ball guests including: Jason Aaron, MK Asante, Jane Austen, Maeve Binchy, Jesus Christ, Charles De Lint, Roddy Doyle, Jane Gardam, Natsuo Kirino, Doris Lessing, Penelope Lively, China Mieville, Margaret Mitchell, Haruki Murakami, Kenneth Roberts, Grace Schulman, Donna Tartt, and Mark Twain.
Even Anjelica Huston let us know she’s got a sizzling escort for the Ball: “I am very excited because I have a hot date tonight with an extremely handsome companion. We are going to share a bubble bath. Although we have known about each other for a while, this will be a chance to get to know him better; after all, you can’t tell a book by his cover…”
Let us know who you’re staying home with! #LFLAStayHome
