3rd Annual Literary Event July 9th!

Mark your calendars – the LIFRC’s Annual Literary Fundraiser is coming up on Saturday, July 9th!  Brenda Peterson, acclaimed novelist and nature writer, will share from her book, I Want to be Left Behind: Finding Rapture Here on Earth.  Peterson takes on human nature and what she calls a spiritual ecology that is as concerned with saving the earth as well as our own souls.  She paints such a hilarious, loving portrait of each world that we will all want to be left behind.

Tickets for this event are $25 and are available at the LIFRC Office, Islehaven Books and Paper, Scissors on the Rock.  Held at the Community Center, the event begins at 6:00 and will feature Bay Café hors d’oeuvres, wine, coffee, and dessert. Attendees will mingle with other supporters of the LIFRC and learn more about how they can help in its vital role of supporting and enriching the Lopez community.

You can pick up a copy of I Want to be Left Behind at the Lopez Library or at Islehaven Books.
