Brunch for Books

March’s party with a purpose is Brunch for Books! Hosted by Lisa Sweeney, this philanthroparty is open to all club members and their friends, and gives us the opportunity to share our love of books and reading by bringing book donations for RIF Pittsburgh. RIF Pittsburgh kindly requests new books.

Please let us know if you’ll be joining us by using this link to RSVP.

RIF has shared with us a list of suggested books that they are in need of most. To make things simple, we assembled a subset of those titles and created an Amazon Wish List entitled: “Sweeney Philanthroparty.“ Our aim is to enable easy shopping and shipping for you! If you choose to purchase online via the “Sweeney Philanthroparty” wish list, just make sure you select “Hilary Taylor's Gift Registry Address” as the shipping address during checkout so the books come directly to us. Of course, you should shop for your books in whatever manner is most convenient to you, just don’t forget to bring them with you to the brunch!
