7th Annual Reading Between the Wines features the Lone Survivor

Dear Editor:

A life-long community of learning – that’s who we are and what we do in Fort Bend County.  With that kind of focus, it is my privilege to invite you to next month’s  7thannual Reading Between the Wines event in support of the Literacy Council of Fort Bend County.  This organization, formed over 30 years ago, impacts real life situations with its adult literacy education programs, which account for the improvement of life-long reading and writing skills.

Marcus Luttrell, author and former Navy SEAL, who wrote Lone Survivor, is the featured speaker of the Literacy Council’s March 29th fundraiser at Safari Texas Ranch.  Luttrell’s book, adapted and made into a feature movie, is based on true events he experienced in Afghanistan.

I invite you, on behalf of the Literacy Council, to hear Luttrell’s first hand, eye witness accounts and other fascinating insights as we dedicate this event to the veterans of all branches our military.  The mission against the Taliban with Luttrell ending up as the lone survivor, represents a tribute to acts of valor that our military men and women are called upon to demonstrate.

Part of a movie review of the Lone Survivor said, “The film succeeded in bringing the mission to life”. This brought to mind the work of the Literacy Council.  Its mission is also aimed at bringing it to life – a better life for its participants through adult literacy education.

Please join us as members of a community of learning on March 29th, 6:30 p.m. at Safari Texas Ranch.  For more information, asanchez@ftbendliteracy.org or 281-240-8181.
