The Fairfax City Branch of the Association of American University Women is hosting its annual Book & Author Luncheon on Saturday, November 3, at the Springfield Golf & Country Club, 8301 Old Keene Mill Road, in Springfield, VA. I’m so pleased that my wife, Tara Laskowski, and I are among the four author presenting at the lunch, along with Joseph Espisito and Josh Pachter.
Below is information about the event, pasted from the AAUW website. The reservation deadline has just passed (October 27) but looking forward to seeing lots of folks there!
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
- 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.
