Book & Author Luncheon

Saturday, November 3, 2018, 11 am to 2 pm

Springfield Golf & Country Club • 8301 Old Keene Mill Road, Springfield

This annual event is sponsored by AAUW Fairfax City Branch to raise funds for scholarships for women in our area and for the AAUW Fund.

We have an exciting program planned for the Book and Author Luncheon – Our featured authors will present to you quirky characters, dark mysteries, an unusual detective, and the pinnacle of 1960s culture.  Mark your calendars and join us to hear:

  • Joseph Esposito, Dinner in Camelot. Some of our greatest scientists, writers, and
    socialites dined at the Kennedy White House in April 1962, reminding us of a past era.
  • Josh Pachter, The Tree of Life. In these stories, Mahboob Chaudri, a Pakistani
    working as a police officer in Bahrain, tackles crimes and solves them with wit and heart.
  • Art Taylor, On the Road with Del and Louise. From screwball comedy to domestic
    drama, these six stories offer suspense with a side of romance—a dash of something for
    all tastes.
  • Tara Laskowski, Bystanders. By turns spooky, terrifying, and banal, the events in these
    stories dramatize how people react when they are involved in unsettling events.
