 Host a CALYX House Party!

Thanks, CALYX Friends!


In past years, CALYX supporters have hosted anniversary birthday parties for us all over the

 United States. 


 Hosting a CALYX House Party is a wonderful way to celebrate women’s literature and share

 Calyx with friends and acquaintances. Parties also help provide support for Calyx into the future.

 The size, feel and offerings of the party are up to each host. Some are intimate reading and

 sharing events. Others are full-blown parties with live music and a silent auction. Or, invite

 some friends for dinner and ask each to pay you what they would’ve paid to eat out in a restaurant.

 Each event is made special by the short readings and presentations by CALYX authors and artists, and a package of materials and information provided by CALYX.  Each new friend of CALYX means possible future support.

 If you have had your work published by CALYX ...

 If you are a member of a book club or reading group ...

 If you like any excuse to throw a party or dinner with friends...

                                          ... we would love the opportunity to help you host a CALYX House Party.

Once you decide the time and place for your event, get in touch with us (info (at) We'll help out by connecting you with CALYX authors in your area, and send you the materials you will need to make your party a success.
