The annual Carolina Authors Luncheon by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) is this Saturday, November 5. The event begins at 11:00 am at UNCW's Burney Center and features three Carolina authors: Tom Olsinski, Flora Solomon, and Philip Gerard. The Luncheon includes a buffet meal, books for sale by Pomegranate, presentations by each of the authors, and raffled items (including a 5-person lunch date with Flora Solomon). This is the main yearly fundraiser of AAUW and supports its scholarships for non-traditional university women and school vision testing, among other activities focused on economic, educational, and political equality for women.
AAUW President Phyllis Leimer and Vice President Ava Bevins joined us in the studio to talk about the organization and the event; listen above. For planning purposes, AAUW prefers tickets to be purchased by Wednesday, November 2, but some will be available through Saturday. Call Lill Van Order at 910-313-1573 to request a reservation.
