Literacy Partners Kicks Off
"An Evening of Readings" May Gala
with Cocktail Reception at Michael's
March 10, 2008  NYC.  Literacy Partners kicked off plans for its annual "Evening of Readings" May Gala, at a cocktail reception held at Michael's.  The reception celebrated the upcoming May gala, which raises funds to support the Literacy Partners mission of teaching adults basic literacy, writing and math skills.
Syndicated columnist Liz Smith, Arnold Scassi and partner Parker Ladd who have served as Co-Chairs of the "Evening of Readings" more then two decades were on hand at Michael's to welcome this year's Gala Honorees, David and Julia Koch.  The reception also celebrated the writings of four extraordinary authors:  MSNBC correspondent Chris Matthews, (Life's a Campaign:  What Politics Has Taught Me About Friendship, Rivalry, Reputation, and Success);  AJ Jacobs (The Year of Living Biblically);  Ann Patchett, (Truth & Beauty);  and Azar Nafisi (Reading Lolita in Tehran:  A Memoir in Books).
On May 12, 2008, more than 500 guests are expected to attend the annual "Evening of Readings" at the State Theatre.  Past guests have included:  Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Yoko Ono, Lauren Bacall, Harvey Weinstein, Barbara Walters, Vanessa Redgrave, Frank Langella, David Westin, Helen Gurley Brown, Mort Zuckerman, Sirio Maccioni, Dominic Dunne, Judy Licht, Jerry Della Femina, Diana Taylor, Somers and Jonathan Farkas, Chris Cuomo, Sir Howard Stringer, Barry Diller, Diane von Furstenberg, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Penny Siegal, and others.
Literacy Partners Inc., a nonprofit organization, has helped thousands of New Yorkers learn the basic reading, writing and math skills needed to succeed in day-to-day living.  Through successful collaborations with major corporations, community partners and benefactors, Literacy Partners offers small, welcoming classes taught by enthusiastic, highly trained volunteer tutors.  Literacy Partners is the only nationally accredited adult literacy program serving New York City
