Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild hosts ‘Conversation and Lunch with Lisa See’

The Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild, in partnership with Warwick’s of La Jolla, hosted a special event March 12, “Conversation and Lunch with Lisa See.” This event was the guild’s main fundraiser for the year..

See, a New York Times best-selling author, presented a talk about her latest book “China Dolls,” followed by a question and answer session.

The sit-down lunch was held at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club where Chinese cuisine was served and colorful Oriental-themed decor provided a fitting ambiance. Guests received a copy of the paperback version of “China Dolls.”

The event committee – led by Ways and Means chair Susan Stone Hayes and board member Vivien U, assisted by Suzanne Johnson, Susan Bailey Cowan, and Kathy Henry – organized the luncheon.

Sponsorship for the event was provided by Donald E. Johnson III of Wells Fargo Advisors, Rancho Santa Fe, and realtor Eveline Bustillos of Coldwell Banker, Rancho Santa Fe.
