Will there be a cost for the luncheon?
Yes, the luncheon price is $55/member. We encourage members to bring a guest to the author events. The cost for your guest is $55 and the same guest is only allowed once per season. Luncheon fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. (not tax deductible)
Members will be emailed when registration for events open. When you register for a luncheon, you will make your meal selection and pay your fee. After each luncheon has concluded, registration for the next luncheon will begin, and so on until our last event in April.
If I have a Family Membership, can I register my family member as my guest?
No, your family member will need to login into their membership and complete registration. If your family member does not have their own email address, please contact us to request their registration.
May I bring a guest?
Members will be notified prior to the luncheon if there is space at the luncheons for guests. Each member can bring no more than one (1) guest per luncheon, a total of five (5) per season. We request that members do not bring the same guest twice or the same guest another member brought to a previous luncheon during the season.
May I have a guest attend a different luncheon location than the one I attend?
Should we have space available for guests at a luncheon, we will email members, and then we would love to have your guest join us in a different luncheon location! For instance, if you are a member in Tucson but would like to invite a guest who lives in Phoenix to attend the luncheon in North Scottsdale on Wednesday, please contact us with your request and we will try to accommodate your guest based on availability.
The registration table will be open at 11:00 a.m. and seating will begin at 11:15 a.m. We encourage you to meet and socialize with your friends prior to the doors opening.
