I’m so honored that I’ve been chosen to speak at the 70th Annual Book & Author Event that benefits the Junior League of Richmond. This is the longest running event of its kind, and I’m very much looking forward to it. There is a luncheon at the Country Club of Virginia and a dinner/presentation at the Greater Richmond Convention Center, both on Wednesday, April 29.
The Junior League of Richmond is an organization of women committed to the mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Last year’s event raised over $53,000 for the organization.
The other speakers are:
- Marisa de los Santos, author of The Precious One
- Marc Peyser & Timothy Dwyer, authors of Hissing Cousins: The Untold Story of Eleanor Roosevelt and Alice Roosevelt Longworth
- Elizabeth Berg, author of The Dream Lover
- Kristen Miglore, author of Food52 Genius Recipes: 100 Recipes That Will Change the Way You Cook
