Get lucky this Friday the 13th by winning tickets to Literacy Mid-South's annual Literatini. 

***Congrats to Sarah McCormick and Whitney Williams for winning the ticket drawing. Thanks to everyone to commented. If you didn't win you can still buy tickets here. ***

Head to Booksellers at Laurelwood and sample martinis from several local restaurants, enjoy some tasty bites, bid on auction items, and shop (20 percent of sales benefit Literacy Mid-South). There will be live music and the typewriter poet guy will make an appearance.

Tickets are $50 per person or $75 per couple, but I'm giving away two pairs for free. To win, just leave a comment on this post telling me the best book you've read lately. You get entered in the drawing twice if it's a book about Memphis or by a Memphis author. (Giveaway ended)

I'll do a drawing at the end of the day today, when I return from a quick road trip I'm taking (and I'll tell you about that, too). Also, Lyft is giving free rides to Literatini. Go to the event's Facebook page for details. 

Go there:
