The League of Women Voters Jefferson County will host an author and lunch fundraiser on Saturday, March 10 at St. Anthony Hospital from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. 11600 W. 2nd Place, Lakewood.

Colorado authors D.D. O’Lander, Emily Littlejohn and Arvada photographer Grant Collier will speak about their books, which will be available to purchase by cash or check.

O’Lander (www.ddolander.com ) has cultivated the Irish gift-of-gab with a passion for World War II history, which is reflected in her novels: “Starling: Emerald Target, Book I” and “Irish: Emerald Target, Book II.”

Emily Littlejohn (www.emilylittlejohn.com) was a 2017 Colorado Book Award finalist for her debut novel “Inherit the Bones.” “A Season to Lie” is the second book in a mystery series about Detective Gemma Monroe.

Arvada resident Grant Collier (www.gcollier.com) is a professional photographer, well known for his book, “Colorado: Yesterday & Today.” He traveled throughout the state taking photos from the exact spots that his great-great-grandfather, Joseph Collier, took his images over 100 years earlier.
