AAUW LITERARY FUNDRAISER
Zoom Event ~~ March 13th, 2021 @ 10 – 11:30am Eastern ~~
Anna will be the keynote speaker at the March Literary Scholarship Fundraiser for the Orlando/WP chapter of AAUW. The national American Association of University Women organization has one key focus – to promote equity and education for women and girls.
COVID turned this 20th annual fundraiser luncheon and silent auction into a Zoom event. The general meeting starts at 10am followed soon after by author Anna Elias. She will share the story of her debut novel, The Vessels, the journey that brought it to life, a short reading (no spoilers) and a Q&A.
The event is free. Donations are appreciated. Watch from home in your pajamas.
To get on the Zoom list, please message Anna on her Facebook or Instagram.
10% of all book sales from this event will go to this scholarship fund. The book is available online at Amazon, Barnes&Noble and more. And you can buy a signed copy directly from the author. The cost is $18. Shipping is free anywhere in the U.S. Message Anna at her FB or IG for details.

“Vessel Time Live”
Join me for my weekly author chat on Facebook live. In light of the national election, the topic will be: “Politics – A House Divided.”
In addition to talking about staying whole in a family that does not vote alike, we will spotlight the novel’s one political figure and the battle brewing between him and his dad, Vessel’s program leader Sam Fullerton, that could cost everything.
