Guest Speaker: Ann Packer

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 bestselling author Ann Packer.

Ms. Packer is the bestselling auther of two novels, Songs Without Words and The Dive from Clausen's Pier, and two collections of short fiction, Mendocino and Other Stories and Swim Back to Me.

Ann Packer will be promoting her new novel, The Children's Crusade. 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 Ms. Packer will be signing copies of her book.

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

For more information contact: (949) 717-3874 or literacy@newportbeachca.gov.
