Hello fellow SERRC members!
As I prepared to write the last president’s message of this year, I was eagerly contemplating our featured speaker for our May dinner meeting. We at SERRC have been very fortunate to have sponsored so many wonderfully entertaining and celebrated speakers. Reminiscing, my mind blissfully wandered down Memory Lane sparking absolutely delightful feelings and thoughts. There have been so many fabulous dinner meeting speakers in my past seven years as SERRC president! Many of our speakers that presented are very well-known: Ian Wallace, Marty Sandler, Rob Buyea (Mr. Terupt series), Lucinda Landon (Meg MacKintosh series), and Grace Lin. Sprinkled in were recognized illustrator, R. W. Alley (Paddington Bear series), Martin Swinger songwriter and singer, Barbara Mariconda co-author of Empowering Writers, as well as many local authors.
Interestingly enough, the most distinguished of our speakers have usually presented at our May meeting. Once again, this year appears to be the case as we are so honored to have local author, Peter Reynolds speak on May 17th. His books, The Dot, Ish, Sky Color, and The Word Collector, just to name a few, have touched the hearts of and inspired children and adults alike!
Please join us next month for an evening of professional development, collegiality, and of course entertainment as SERRC hosts author and illustrator Peter Reynolds!
Please be advised that the dinner reservations deadline for our May 17th meeting is May 7th! Return the attached reservation page now if you have not done so already.
Don’t miss what is sure to be a fabulous evening with Author/Illustrator Featuring Peter H. Reynolds
We hope you will be attending!
