It was a well-read and well-fed crowd at "Book Bash 1999." Some 600 folks turned out at the Bibelot bookstore in Pikesville to meet more than 60 authors and eat offerings from 20 area restaurants and caterers.

There were book readings, book signings and book buying aplenty, bringing in some $75,000 for Literacy Works Inc., a nonprofit agency that coordinates adult literacy programs and services in Baltimore County.

Book "bashers" included Helene Waranch, executive director of Literacy Works Inc.; Lindy Small, board member; Lori Southworth and Barbara Shapiro, event co-chairs; Elayne Hettleman, Caryn Sagal, Sandy Feldman, event committee members; Diane Rehm, Rochelle Krich, Jerdine Nolen, John Shields, Ted Patterson, Blair Walker, authors; Richard Lee, Baltimore County Minority Business Enterprise officer; Michelle Waranch, White House intern; Ken Waldych, Allfirst Bank senior VP; and Debbie Owens, host of the WEAA radio show "Money Talks."
