We are excited to announce that the final celebration of the Center's fifth anniversary year will be a special luncheon on September 24, 2019. Our speaker will be Christina Baker Kline, bestselling author of seven novels, including Orphan Train and, more recently, A Piece of the World, which explores the real-life relationship between the artist Andrew Wyeth and the subject of his best-known painting, Christina's World. An instant New York Times bestseller, A Piece of the World was awarded the 2018 New England Prize for Fiction, the 2018 Maine Literary Award, and a Silver Nautilus Award. Kline's 2013 novel, Orphan Train, spent more than two years on the NYT bestseller list, including five weeks as #1, and was published in 40 countries. Hundreds of communities, schools and universities have chosen Orphan Train as a "One Book, One Read" selection.
The Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women is honored to host Christina Baker Kline, and we hope you will consider joining us on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 for this special event. Invitations will follow soon. Until then, please save the date!
