Phoenix Ivy Council alums are invited to the
Smith Authors Brunch
Join us for a book reading and compelling discussion with three highly talented Smith authors:
Nancy Marshall - A Dry Hate: How Do You Explain Arizona?
America's toughest sheriff has arrested and jailed day workers, newspaper editors, innocent brown citizens, activist, and legal observers who get in the crosshairs of his campaign to rid Arizona of illegal aliens. The author does a wonderful job of building the tension as she weaves the story of power abuse and immigration law through the eyes of characters on every side of the issues
Amanda Orr - A Spoonful of Sugar
A Spoonful of Sugar is a satire on the frenzy of modern parenting, feminism, childcare, and most certainly the pervasiveness of the pharmaceutical industry. The Nanny Diaries collides with Prozac Nation in this story that chronicles Anna Moore's journey from Super Mom to Super Hot Mess to Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
Kiki Swanson - My Will Be Done
Set near Chicago from 1902 through 1973, the book brings history to life and provides threatening moments, loving scenes and tender humor. Readers may recognize some of their relatives and the human emotions that agitate families. The psychological effects of Bertha's life provide a contrast between people who live for others and one who lives for herself.
