Fundraiser Event for Weston Center for Women

I’ve had the great honor of being included in an upcoming multi-author event in support of the Weston Center for Women, a non-profit organization that assists women who are transitioning back into the community after incarceration or inpatient substance abuse treatment.

The event is taking place Saturday, April 30 from 1 to 4 p.m. on the grounds of Mont Marie, 28 Lower Westfield Road, Holyoke, Massaschusetts. There will be wines to sample and terrific hot and cold hors d’ouevres. And attendees will have the chance to meet some truly fine writers (and, you know, at least one guy who writes books about football). You’ll also be able to buy signed copies of all the authors’ books with proceeds from sales supporting the Weston Center. And, you know, even if you already have all of our books, keep in mind that Mothers Day, Fathers Day and graduation season all are coming up. Signed books make awesome gifts. Tickets are $30 in advance, $50 at the door.

Check out the list of participating writers:

Kevin O’Hara: Author of the memoir, Last of the Donkey Pilgrims, and the essay collection A Lucky Irish Lad.

Ruth Sanderson: Author and illustrator of children’s books.

Jean Stone: Prolific author of novels published both under her own name and the pen the name Abby Drake.

Suzanne Strempek Shea: Author of novels and nonfiction including Selling the Lite of Heaven and Sundays in America.

Marty Dobrow: Journalist and author whose latest book is Knocking on Heaven’s Door: Six Minor Leaguers in Search of the Baseball Dream.

Dori Ostermiller: Founder of the Florence studio Writers in Progress and author of the debut novel Outside the Ordinary World.

Ellen Meeropol: Ellen is celebrating the release of her acclaimed first novel, House Arrest.

Judith Kappenman: Author of a fictionalized version of her grandfather’s life story, To Dakota and Back: The Story of an Orphan Train Rider.

David Page: Baystate Medical Center surgeon and author of several writing books and the medical thriller The Phoenix Prescription.

Kevin Markey: Author of Slumpbuster, Wall Ball, and Wing Ding — the first, second, and third books in his Super Sluggers series of baseball adventures — and several books of nonfiction.

And, as noted, yours truly, author of all the books you can read about here, including Game Changers: The Greatest Plays in New England Patriots History.

I know I’m really excited about being part of this event. Maybe I’ll see you there.
