WIP members and friends met to enjoy dinner and attend a talk by celebrated best-selling author Amy Tan at the Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium at Ohio University.
During dinner, Dorothy Schey, OHIO's Director of Development for WIP and the 1804 Fund, welcomed guests and spoke about the mission, goals and recent successes of Women in Philanthropy.
Tan's talk reflected on her unique relationship with her mother, which was the basis of her widely popular book "The Joy Luck Club." The novel appeared on The New York Times bestseller list for 75 weeks, has been translated into 35 languages and was made into a highly acclaimed and wildly successful film. Her other novels—also New York Times bestsellers—include "The Kitchen God's Wife," "The Hundred Secret Senses, " "The Bonesetter's Daughter," and "Saving Fish from Drowning."
