A DAY OF AUTHORS

Thank you for your continuing support of ALPHA.  We appreciate you hanging in there with us during this pandemic.  As you know, it necessitated the cancellation of our in-person A Day of Author events for both 2020 and 2021.  We hope you enjoyed our free Virtual A Day of Authors event we held this year to keep us all entertained and engaged with authors.  

We also appreciate all the support we received for our basket fundraiser held late 2020.  With your help we raised over $14,000 which we were able to immediately give back to those in much need here in our local community.  

We are planning an in-person A Day of Author’s event for spring 2022 and expect to be able to give you a date shortly.  Stay tuned.  

We hope you join us for our 2022 event.  We also invite you to consider joining us as a member.  We’re a group of women who both give back to our local communities and know how to have fun.  We even have our own book club.  We’d love to hear from you.  Please do not hesitate to communicate with us via email at alpha.fullerton@yahoo.com or on our Facebook pages at A Day of Authors or Alpha of Fullerton.

    Rufi Thorpe

    Rufi Thorpe is a gifted writer in the adult and young adult genre. Her plots delve deeply into the challenges of young adulthood, and family dynamics. Her latest novel, The Knockout Queen, is described by the LA Times as “..a dazzling, darkly comic novel of love, violence and friendship in the California suburbs…” Queen is full of verve and drawn in colors as vibrant as a David Hockney landscape. She “takes a familiar plotline—a pair of teen misfits form an unlikely but life-altering friendship—and turns it into an arrestingly original, darkly comic meditation on moral ambiguity.” (Kirkus) A stunner of a novel…beautiful, sad, optimistic, and fully engaging.
