Author Speaks at NCL Patroness Meeting

The San Marino Area Chapter of National Charity League recently held its monthly patroness meeting at the Pasadena Public Library Auditorium. The guest speaker was Laurie Gelman, author of “Class Mom,” which follows a year in the life of a mother who has to navigate tricky school politics after being named the kindergarten class mom. Gelman, who is married to “Live With Kelly and Ryan” producer Michael Gelman, also read an excerpt of her upcoming July 2019 release of “You’ve Been Volunteered.” Patronesses enjoyed her presentation before conducting regular NCL business.
