The 21st Annual Cover to Cover event will bring together a full house of guests from throughout the community to celebrate women authors on Saturday, May 5 at Maderas Golf Club. The luncheon is American Association of University Women (AAUW) Poway-Peñasquitos Branch’s signature annual event, and this year will include opportunity baskets, drawings, book signings, book sales, and the main event – presentations from authors Michelle Gable, Shilpi Somaya Gowda, and Susan Carol McCarthy.

San Diego native Michelle Gable is the author of three books, as well as the upcoming book The Summer I Met Jack. Shilpi Somaya Gowda is the author of Secret Daughter and The Golden Son. Carlsbad resident Susan Carol McCarthy has published three novels, including A Place We Knew Well, and one work of nonfiction.

Cover to Cover proceeds benefit STEM camps for middle school students and scholarships for local women returning to college. Learn more and find tickets at
