Wichita Eagle Letters to the Editor – October 9, 2018

Thank you Watermark, Assistance League

I, along with many other book lovers, experienced a wonderful event at WSU’s Hughes Metroplex on Saturday, Oct. 6. Assistance League of Wichita and Watermark Books partnered for an Assistance League fundraiser, “Day of Authors” which brought six award-winning (and simply incredible) authors to our city for a day of learning and sharing.

I encourage you to seek out and read books by: Lou Berney, Jenna Blum, Caroline Fraser, Peter Geye, Delia Owens and Sarah Smarsh.

Let me also encourage you to save the date of Oct. 12, 2019, when once again the Assistance League and Watermark Books will be bringing top-notch authors to ICT. Your attendance helps the league to continue the good work they do through their four philanthropic programs. My heartfelt thanks to both.

Carol Beat, Wichita
