Fall for Literacy Luncheon



Local author Cecilia Budd Grimes will be the keynote speaker at Chatham Literacy’s 1st annual Fall for Literacy Luncheon.

The event will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 9, at the Siler City Country Club.

All proceeds from the luncheon directly fund Chatham Literacy’s free instruction for adult learners.

Come enjoy a delicious lunch and an entertaining program. In addition, all attendees will receive a free copy of Ms. Grimes’s book What It Means to Have a Southern Wedding. And one person at each table will also win an additional door prize.

Southerners, as they say, are different. If you’ve ever wondered why they are like they are, it’s in the book, What It Means To Be Southern. If you’ve ever wondered why they aren’t more like you’d expect, that’s in the book, too.

Join Cecilia Budd Grimes, a Southern born and bred lady, as she takes you on a fun romp through Southern recipes, and Southern rules.

If you grew up Southern, you’ll probably nod your head and smile during Ms. Grimes’s talk. If not, then learn all about what it means to be Southern.

The Fall for Literacy Luncheon is an important annual fundraising and awareness raising event for Chatham Literacy. Chatham Literacy provides free tutoring to adults in reading, writing, English for Speakers of Other Languages and workforce soft skills, as well as citizenship and GED preparation.
