Elms hosts Meet the Authors

The Women's Partnership, a division of the Affiliated Chambers of Commerce of Greater Springfield, Inc. will host their annual scholarship fundraising event, Meet the Authors. This important fund-raiser is presented courtesy of Odyssey Book Store, with sponsorship from TD Banknorth. The event hosted by Elms College's Berchmans Hall, 294 Springfield St., Chicopee on June 6 from 5-7 p.m. Tickets are $40. Wine sampling provided by Cabot Liquor Store.

This year's authors include Kris Holloway-Bidwell, Jacqueline Sheehan, Jeanne Birdsall, Barry Moser, Cammie McGovern, Sister Ann Daly, Patricia MacLachlan and Jeanne Braham. This is a great opportunity for you to meet local authors and have them sign your favorite book or their newest release.

WP scholarships are open to women who have had their educational goals interrupted and are currently trying to re-enter a higher educational institution. Applicants must be over 25 years old, live in Hampden or Hampshire County, with community involvement to be considered. Meet the Authors is the event of the year to raise funds for WP scholarships.

Meet the Authors is an event you cannot afford to miss. For more information, or if you are interested in becoming a sponsor, contact Diane Swanson at 755-1313.

All proceeds benefit the Women's Partnership Scholarship Fund.
