Put the Kettle on and Have a Virtual Cuppa with
Irish-American Author Kerry Kletter, East Coast Girls
Date: Tuesday, June 9, 2020
Time: 2:00 to 3:30 p.m.
The COVID-19 crisis still has New York City on “pause” at least until the week of June 8, 2020. So in the spirit of continued “connection and community,” IBO Women’s Networking Committee will host its second virtual networking event — a Zoom afternoon tea — on Tuesday, June 9, 2020 @ 2 p.m.
We are thrilled to host Kerry Kletter, author of the new novel East Coast Girls, for an afternoon interview and Q&A.

Network — Communicate — Reciprocate
First we’ll start off the way we usually do and per the IBO mission:
- Network: Go around the Zoom room for 30-second intros — cameras on
- Communicate: Share asks and/or offers
- Reciprocate: Community huddle on how our IBO community can help
Reciprocate Some More
Another way we’ll reciprocate is by donating all proceeds from registration fees to Women in Need (Win). Win is New York City’s largest provider of shelter and services for homeless families with children and is in urgent need of additional support for its critical work responding to homelessness during the Covid 19 pandemic. Thank you in advance for your support and we look forward to seeing you on June 9!
Please RSVP no later than 5:00 p.m., Monday, June 8, 2020.
