AAUW Scholarship Fundraiser: Authors Day Breakfast & Silent Auction
Colorado Springs Shrine Club
6 South 33rd Street
Colorado Springs, CO 80904
Hosted by the Colorado Springs Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) - a must-attend annual event!
Our mission is to advance equity for women and girls through research, education, and advocacy. Each year, Authors Day ticket sales and the accompanying silent auction are a major source of funds for the college scholarships our branch awards.
Our keynote author will be Colorado-based Eleanor Brown, New York Times best-selling author of The Weird Sisters (Shakespeare’s Macbeth, anyone?) and her most recent novel The Light of Paris.
Our second author is Elizabeth L. Fox and her featured book We Are Going To Be Lucky: A World War II Love Story in Letters. The author provides a wonderful, intimate picture of a time (World War II era), places (Europe and the home front), and people (two, first-generation Americans separated by war), told through the vivid letters of the author’s parents, exchanged during their separation.
Our final author is Susan Joy Paul, writer of well-known Colorado guidebooks including Hiking Colorado Waterfalls, and Touring Colorado Hot Springs.
