A Celebration of Story, benefiting Writers in the Schools (WITS) takes place next Thursday, November 4, 2010, 7 PM at the Junior League of Houston. Discounted tickets for $150 are still available for a limited time, so reserve your seats now. Jeannette Walls will tell why she wrote her best-selling memoir The Glass Castle, an Amazon “Top 10 Book of the Decade” currently in movie production by Paramount. A book sale and signing will follow the program courtesy of Brazos Bookstore.
WITS will proudly present the “Founder’s Award” to Mayor Annise Parker for her advocacy in education. Proceeds will help WITS serve more than 20,000 students in schools, community centers, hospitals and homeless shelters. Join us for an inspirational evening and help us further creative writing programming for the exceptional students empowered by WITS each year.
