10:00 AM: Prologue Party
(Pre-signing & Meet the Authors event for Author and Golden Key Table guests)/General Book Sales
11:00 AM: Lunch and Program
In 2010, the Memphis Alumnae Association book club created a philanthropic event to raise awareness and funds to help fight illiteracy in the Memphis area. The first "Literacy Is Key" event in 2011 attracted large numbers of local book-loving citizens and has grown steadily since that first luncheon. "Literacy Is Key" is supported by many book clubs, community organizations, and businesses, and continues to entertain its guests by attracting great authors, as it supports local literacy education organizations.
Over the last three years, “Literacy Is Key” has raised nearly $50,000 for Literacy Mid-South. These proceeds also funded our annual hands-on service project, Reading is Key, which presents fun reading activities and free books to at-risk children in local schools.
We had over 400 people attend our 2013 “Literacy is Key” luncheon, which was more than double the attendance from our First LIK Luncheon in 2011. We expect our 2014 event to draw an even higher attendance than ever before!!
