Seventh Annual Gift of Literacy

Guest Speaker: Lisa See

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 Lisa See. Her books, Snowflower and the Secret Fan, Peony in Love, Shanghai Girls and others, have captured the imagination of readers everywhere.

Lisa See will be debuting her newly released book, China Dolls, at this event. Each attendee will receive a first edition hardback copy of the book with their ticket purchase. This special gift is made possible by our sponsor Richard Hearn of the STARCARE Foundation.

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. See will be signing copies of her book.

With See's popularity as an author and a speaker 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. You can also purchase your tickets online.
