Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has accepted a friendly bet with Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges over the outcome of the WNBA Finals series between the Sparks and Lynx.

The wager celebrates the accomplishments of distinguished women authors from both cities. If the Sparks win, Hodges will send copies of books by some of Minneapolis’ most celebrated women authors to Garcetti for donation to the Downtown Women’s Center. If the Lynx win, Garcetti will send books by L.A. authors to Minneapolis.
