Join us for our annual "Gift of Literacy" luncheon

Featured guest speaker

Gregg Hurwitz

June 3, 2016

With a career spanning thrillers, screen plays and even the hottest comic books worldwide, international best-selling author Gregg Hurwitz will speak about the fascinating journey that began with a B.A. from Harvard and a Master’s in Shakespearean tragedies from Oxford University, to propel him to the top of the New York Times best-seller lists.

This exciting event at The Pacific Club will include a raffle, silent auction and book signing. Gregg’s latest title, Orphan X, is included with your luncheon ticket.

Tickets will be available soon.

We expect this to be a sell-out event, so if you wish to be notified as soon as tickets are available, contact literacy@newportbeachca.gov or call (949) 717-3874.

Newport/Mesa ProLiteracy is a program of the Newport Beach Public Library which provides free literacy instruction to adults who live or work in the Newport Beach area. Our dedicated volunteers have helped hundreds of people improve their English skills. In doing so, these volunteers have helped change lives. Literacy is a concern for everyone in our community as it affects not only the learner, but employers, healthcare providers, schools and more.

For many in our population, English is their second language. All second language learners benefit from learning better English skills. Job opportunities improve with English proficiency, children perform better in school if their parents are able to help them and healthcare providers can more easily care for their patient if they are proficient in English. NMPL is dedicated to achieving literacy for all members of our society. Literacy does change lives!

We need your support! Donate to Newport/Mesa ProLiteracy!
