Luncheon for Literacy

Do the Lit 'n' Lunch

Frederick Douglass said, “Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.” Help others free themselves by going to the Fifth Annual Luncheon for Literacy on Sunday, June 25, from 11am-2pm. The event is a fundraiser for Reading Works, a nonprofit that provides free literacy tutoring to adults. A $70 ticket will give you entrée to a literacy bazaar, a plated lunch, a performance by Albuquerque's all female a cappella group Q Chorus and a talk by Jimmy Santiago Baca—one of the “best poets in America today.” All ages are welcome to support this excellent cause at Hotel Albuquerque.
