On May 2, 2013 from 7-8:30 PM, join us in this special opportunity to meet Randy Susan Meyers, bestselling author of The Murderer’s Daughters and The Comfort of Lies, and support literacy and reading among girls! A $30 attendance fee includes a copy of Meyers’ most recent book, The Comfort of Lies, light refreshments and a silent auction.
The drama of Randy Susan Meyers' novels is informed by her years spent working in education social service, specifically with batterers and victims of domestic violence. Raised in Brooklyn New York, Randy now lives in Boston with her husband and is the mother of two grown daughters. She teaches writing seminars at Boston’s Grub Street Writers’ Center.
All proceeds from this event will go to Girls Inc. of Lynn along with young adult books donated by the publisher. This event is sponsored by Ira Audi and will be held in the Ira Audi building at 252 Andover Street (Rte 114) in Peabody.
Empowerment comes with each word, sentence and book that a girl reads. Come and support the mission of Girls Inc. of Lynn, to inspire girls to be strong, smart and bold! Girls Inc. of Lynn provides innovative and educational programs at the center, in schools and at other youth agencies. These research-based curricula, delivered by trained professionals, equip girls to achieve academically, lead healthy and physically active lives, manage money, navigate media messages, and discover an interest in science, technology, engineering and math. The Girls Inc. experience prepares girls with the appropriate tools to overcome gender, economic and social barriers and grow into healthy, educated and independent adults.
