In celebration of the 35th anniversary of the Oakland Literacy Council, we have lined up an amazing guest speaker for our biggest fundraising event of the year, the Ex Libris dinner. On Thursday, November 14, 2019, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and Washington Post editor David Marannis will share a riveting story from his childhood in Detroit. The story about how his father was swept up in the anti-Communist fear that swept the country in the 1950s is the subject of Marannis’s newest book, A Good American Family: The Red Scare and My Father. Please save the date for this wonderful evening in which we will hear Marannis’s story as well as honor the many stories of our students, tutors, and long-time advocates who together weave a powerful tapestry of our collective work in Oakland County. And consider becoming a sponsor of this wonderful fundraiser. More information on sponsorship can be found here.
