Support the Mothers and Babies of Johnson County
Join more than 800 guests for an afternoon of great literature, gourmet food, and boutique shopping with special remarks from featured author Rebecca Alexander.
Books & Boutiques was founded by women to support women’s health initiatives and is a significant source of funding for the patients and programs of Saint Luke’s South Hospital. This year’s event will help provide enhancements to the maternity unit, offering new moms, their little ones, and families a welcoming, supportive, and comfortable environment.
About the Author
Rebecca Alexander, the award-winning author of Not Fade Away: A Memoir of Senses Lost and Found, is the featured author this year. Rebecca is a psychotherapist, extreme athlete, and disability advocate. Born with a rare genetic disorder called Usher Syndrome Type III, Rebecca has been simultaneously losing both her sight and hearing since she was a teenager. Despite these difficulties, Rebecca refuses to lose her drive and zest for life, rising above every challenge she’s ever faced, including climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. A role model for all ages, her life story is currently being produced as a major motion picture.
All guests will receive a signed copy of Rebecca’s book.
