EVENT TO BE HELD MAY 1ST
White Plains, NY (February 28, 2014) – The Auxiliary of White Plains Hospital: No strangers to distinguished guests - are hosting their annual Spring Luncheon on May 1st at the beautiful Metropolis Country Club in White Plains, NY. This year’s event will feature New York Times best-selling novelist, Andrew Gross.
A Purchase resident and a graduate of Columbia University, Mr. Gross is the author of New York Times best-seller The Blue Zone; international best-seller The Dark Tide; five No. 1 best-selling novels in partnership with fellow suspense writer James Patterson; and several other books. Everything to Lose is set to release this April on the heels of his 2013 novel No Way Back, which has an upcoming television adaptation on ABC. Mr. Gross will be outlining why the thriller genre matters in modern literature, and will discuss his experience transitioning from the garment business to life as a best-selling author.
“We’re excited to have a local author speak at our luncheon. We’ve had authors before, but one who lives here in Westchester County and has a recognized public name will definitely resonate with the attendees. Brenda Oestreich, our co-president, and I are sure he will be very entertaining and informative. We can’t wait to have him,” said Rachel Chalchinksy, Co-President of The Auxiliary of White Plains Hospital.
All proceeds from the luncheon will go directly to support White Plains Hospital.
