‘Spring for Literacy’ features Lee Smith

Award-winning author Lee Smith will share stories from her popular new memoir at Chatham Literacy’s 7th annual Spring for Literacy Luncheon in April. You can register now for this event, which will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, at Governors Club in northern Chatham County.

Smith_Dimestore_HC_jkt_FINAL_PRNT_REV.inddMs. Smith has written 17 books in addition to “Dimestore: A Writer’s Life,” which tells her heartwarming story of growing up in the small coal-mining town of Grundy, Virginia, becoming a writer and raising her own family in North Carolina. She now lives in Hillsborough with her husband, the writer Hal Crowther.

Luncheon tickets are $100 per person, $79 of which is a tax-deductible donation to Chatham Literacy. All proceeds from Spring for Literacy — Chatham Literacy’s biggest fundraiser of the year — directly fund the non-profit’s free adult literacy programming in Chatham County.
