Guest Speaker: Gregg Hurwitz

Newport/Mesa ProLiteracy invites you to celebrate the "Gift of Literacy" at this very special annual event. This year, our annual fundraising luncheon will feature international bestselling author Gregg Hurwitz.

With a career spanning thrillers, screen plays and even the hottest comic books worldwide, Mr. Hurwitz will speak about the fascinating journey that began with a B.A. from Harvard and a Master’s in Shakespearean tragedies from Trinity College, Oxford to propel him to the top of the New York Times best-seller lists, among others. His books have been translated into 26 languages.

Gregg Hurwitz will be promoting his new novel, Orphan X. Each attendee will receive a first edition hardback copy of the book with their ticket purchase.

The Literacy Program is very excited to have this acclaimed writer as guest speaker and hopes you will join the special event. There will be a silent auction, opportunity drawings, and Mr. Hurwitz will be signing copies of his book.

We expect this event to be SOLD OUT. Be sure to get your tickets early.

This year we are also offering a very special VIP experience: a 30-minute meet & greet with the author. Only 20 tickets available for this private pre-luncheon event, so don't delay!
