Installation of NAWBO 2010-11 Officers
Edie Hand, co-author of Women of True Grit, will speak at the installation of the 2010-2011 board of directors of the Nation Association of Women Business Owners-Northern New Mexico chapter at 5:30pm on Wednesday, June 16th at the Embassy Suites in Albuquerque.
Women of True Grit was launched in Washington, DC last March. The book, also co-authored by Tina Savas, is comprised of “stories and secrets from the women who did it: work, succeed, pave the way for others to triumph.”
Two of the women who are featured in the book will also appear at the event. Patricia “Terri” Sperry Carr who lives in Orange County, California is one of the first women to work as a systems engineer for IBM and Faye Heller of Pennsylvania found her path to freedom in the trash business. Ms. Carr is a graduate of the University of New Mexico and Ms. Heller is the mother of an Albuquerque Police Department officer. Another local woman of note, actress Angelina Torres, was interviewed for the book prior to her recent death and is included as a “woman of true grit” which she certainly was.
The forward to the book was written by Barbara Mandrell and the poem was contributed by Dr. Maya Angelou. The publisher is Canterbury House Publishing, Ltd.
