SARASOTA, Fla. – Kitty Kelley, an internationally acclaimed writer and New York Times best-selling author, will make a stop in Sarasota to promote her new book during a luncheon benefitting the Women’s Resource Center of Sarasota County (WRCSC), a not-for-profit organization that empowers women to become self-reliant through personal, social and professional growth opportunities and educational scholarships.
On Tuesday, December 4, 2012 at 11:30 a.m., Kelley will discuss and sign the evoking and historical book “CAPTURING CAMELOT – Stanley Tretick’s Iconic Images of the Kennedys” at Marina Jack. She has combined her talents with legendary photographer Stanley Tretick on the new book (released November 13, 2012), which features never-before-seen photos.
This is a precursor event to Renaissance, the WRCSC’s annual Sarasota fundraiser to be held March 13, 2013. The 2013 theme is Redefining Balance and will feature guest speaker Anne-Marie Slaughter, academic, author, foreign policy analyst and writer of the controversial article featured in The Atlantic titled “Why Women Still Can’t Have it All.”
The funds raised at this event help support the many programs and services provided by the WRCSC, including Challenge, employment guidance, peer resource advisors and more.
