Friends of Weatherford Public Library Spring Luncheon

March 11, 2013 by Jennifer Retter

Event Date: 
Fri, 04/05/2013 - 11:30am - 1:00pm

Friends of the Weatherford Public Library will host speaker Suzie Humphreys at the 27th annual Spring Luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, April 5, at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center in Weatherford. Humphreys worked as a television talk show host and spent 20 years in radio. She has hobnobbed with movie stars and politicians interviewed the great and the “near” great. She has made hundreds of commercials, done musical comedy and motion pictures. She has been fired, been broke, been disappointed, been a petrified expectant mother at 40 years old and lived her life with a passion for learning not only to be better, but to see things differently.

Suzie Humphreys received one of the longest standing ovations on record from the National Speakers Association when she spoke to 2,500 of her peers at their convention in Palm Springs, California. In 2002, at their National Convention, she received the Council of Peers Award of Excellence and was inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame. In 2004, Suzie was inducted into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame.

Tickets are $25 per ticket. Call Gail Greenfield at 817-594-4473 to reserve a spot. Proceeds help the Friends of the Library fund the Summer Reading Program for the Kids as well as many other endeavors.
