Two authors will address guests at literacy luncheon in La Jolla
Words Alive, San Diego’s non-profit literacy/scholarship organization, will hold its annual Authors’ Luncheon Tuesday, Nov.1 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine. The luncheon will include two keynote speakers: authors Hillary Jordon (“Mudbound,” 2008 and “When She Woke” 2011) and Jasmin Darznik (“The Good Daughter: A Memoir of My Mother’s Hidden Life,” 2011).
KPBS’ “A Way with Words” hosts Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett will emcee the event.
The luncheon will open at 10 a.m. with a marketplace featuring Warwick’s Books and Geppetto’s Toys. Each merchant will donate a percentage of the day’s sales to Words Alive. There will also be a variety of other vendors.
The authors will greet fans and sign books 10-11:30 a.m. and 1:30-2:30 p.m.
Tickets are $100 and include a signed copy of Hillary Jordan’s “When She Woke.” No tickets will be sold at the door. A limited number of table sponsorships are available and start at $1,500.
