A diverse foursome — an actress and an architect, a Canadian and an Israeli — share in common both penning best sellers and the spotlight at the American Association of University Women’s annual literary lunch on Saturday, March 8.
The 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. event at the Surf & Sand Resort includes a silent auction, raffle and table prizes and the chance to meet Canada’s Megan M. Doherty, author of “Transitive Woman”; architect Mina Javaherbin, who wrote “The Secret Message,” actress Wendy Lawless, author of “Chanel Bonfire”; and Israeli-born Dora Levy Mossanen, who penned “The Last Romanov” and “Scent of Butterflies.”
Book sales will be handled by Linda Friedman of Books, Events & Authors Unlimited.
Fundraising beneficiaries include women in graduate study and gender equity research, science camp for middle school girls, scholarships and tutoring.
Tickets are $85 by March 1, and $90 afterwards; $48 is a tax-deductible donation.
Send reservations, payable AAUW-LBF, to Janette Mestre, 2240 Hillview Dr., Laguna Beach CA 92651. For further information, contact Karen Dennis 949/494-5378, firstname.lastname@example.org.
