Following wine and hors d’oeuvres, Read to Grow founder and board Chairwoman Roxanne Coady will interview Quindlen, author of a new novel, "Every Last One."
In the book, Quindlen presents a portrait of a mother, a father, and a family, and the explosive, disastrous consequences of what seem like normal, everyday actions, organizers said.
Single tickets to the event are $50. Premium tickets, which include a signed first edition of "Every Last One," are $70.
Seating is limited. Call Read to Grow at 203-488-6800 to reserve a seat or for more information. Proceeds will benefit the programs of Read to Grow, a Branford-based nonprofit literacy organization that works to build literacy for all Connecticut children beginning at birth.
