JOIN US FOR HAPPY HOUR WITH AUTHOR MARLA JO FISHER!

Newport/Mesa ProLiteracy is pleased to present Marla Jo Fisher at a virtual happy hour -- an author talk followed by a Q&A -- on Saturday, April 24, 2021 at 5 pm

Marla Jo Fisher writes the Frumpy Middle-Aged Mom column, which runs in eleven of the Southern California News Group's newspapers, including the Orange County Register. She was a workaholic newspaper reporter before adopting two children out of foster care at age 46, picking up a scruffy dog along the way, and she has somehow managed to keep them all alive. A former award-winning investigative reporter, Fisher now juggles her job as a newspaper columnist with being a single mom, all the while being exhorted from everywhere to be thinner, smarter, sexier, better exercised, more philanthropic, more frugal, more stylish, more devoted to her kids, more devoted to her job, better dressed, a healthier cook, a tidier housekeeper, and a more engaged citizen.

Fisher’s columns and travel articles have also appeared in many newspapers and websites nationwide, including the Philadelphia InquirerMiami HeraldDeseret NewsWichita EagleWaterbury Republican-AmericanPittsburgh Post-GazetteSacramento BeeWilkes-Barre Times LeaderAtlanta Journal-Constitution, and the Charlotte Observer.
