Reader/Author Community Shows Support for L.A. Banks

UPDATE (6/15/11): A charity auction is scheduled to help benefit a fund to defray Leslie’s medical costs. Please check out our events section for more information.

We at All Romance / OmniLit / ARe Cafe would like to extend our positive thoughts and prayers to bestselling author L.A. Banks, who is currently struggling through a very serious illness. Many of us have had the opportunity to meet Leslie Banks at various book events over the years – her enthusiasm and love for the reading community is infectious, and if you ever had the pleasure of talking with her you can’t help but smile. We are saddened to hear of her current condition and hope she is able to recover.

We have also learned, too, that as a result of Leslie’s illness there are a number of expenses mounting. A number of book bloggers and well wishers have passed on information, which we also provide here. To make a donation to help Leslie cover her bills, you can contribute here:
