2020 Annual Literary Event Fundraiser

May 6 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$60

Meet acclaimed author Courtney Maum and immerse yourself in the Surrealist movement of 1930s Mexico!

Courtney Maum will be sharing her work Costalegre, A GOOP Book Club selection, and a favorite of Entertainment Weekly, Time Magazine, The Boston Globe, Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. Heavily inspired by the real-life relationship between Peggy Guggenheim and her daughter, Pegeen, it is the touching story of a privileged teenager who has everything a girl could wish for except for a mother who loves her back. Courtney is also the author of I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You, Touch, and the handbook Before and After the Book Deal: A writer’s guide to finishing, publishing, promoting, and surviving your first book.

Proceeds benefit Glen Ellyn Children’s Resource Center. A portion of the proceeds will directly support program expansion into Glen Ellyn Community Consolidated School District 89 and the development of an after-school literacy program at Glen Crest Middle School.

Ticket sales begin March 1. Ticket price includes one drink and appetizers.

Evening includes raffle and silent auction.
