Lisa Napoli will be our October Luncheon guest speaker

October 11, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Welcome Fall with your WPF sisters at our October Monthly Meeting with guest speaker Lisa Napoli, author of the biography of the late philanthropist, Mrs. Joan Kroc.  You can find more about this new book, titled Ray & Joan: The Man Who Made the McDonald’s Fortune and the Woman Who Gave it All Away, here.

She also wrote Radio Shangri-La, has worked for CNN, as a technology reporter in the early days of the Web at The NY Times, in a similar capacity at MSNBC, and also at the public radio show Marketplace.  (In that order, and with a variety of other jobs in between.)

Lisa is most proud of her work as the founding board chair of the Bhutan Media Society, which produces the all-volunteer Bhutan News Service, begun by Bhutanese refugees back in the camps in Nepal and continued now in diaspora.  For her use of social media in leading a cooking group on Skid Row in Los Angeles, she won the Downtown Women’s Center a $25,000 Halo Award.

Lisa grew up in Brooklyn, NY, and graduated from Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass.

Don’t miss this opportunity! See you in October.
