Lincoln Center Reading

On May 16, 2005 Sue Monk Kidd read from her novel The Mermaid Chair at the Lincoln Center in New York as part of “A Gala Evening of Readings”. The event was a benefit for Literacy Partners and “a celebration of the power of the written word.” The other three readers were Edward P. Jones, Lauren Bacall and Renee Fleming. The evening raised $1.1 million dollars for literacy in New York City.
