Women & Words was established in 2003 by a group of women who love to read and whose mission is to honor women’s words and achievements. They created a literary event that promotes women authors and inspires others by donating the proceeds to a diverse group of charitable organizations. Since 2004, Women & Words has raised almost $25,000 for charities such as Children’s Law Center, Penny Lane, Women’s Care Cottage, Westside Children’s Center, Children’s Institute Inc., Children’s Hospital, WriteGirl, Echo Center for Parenting Education, and Reach Out and Read.
This year, you can meet authors Gabrielle Zevin (The storied life of A.J. Fikry), Nicole Mones (Shangahi Nights), Cynthia Bond (Ruby), Rachel Howzell Hall (Land of Shadows), and Kathy Eldon (author of In the Heart of Life and founder and chairwoman of the Creative Visions Foundation). All proceeds will benefit the CHAMPION Fund which is the fundraising arm of the Division of Adolescent Medicine, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Join fellow literary lovers for a day full of authors, eats, and charity! Register on-line at www.womenandwords.com/.
