Over the past 10 years, Literature for All of Us (LFAOU) has celebrated mothers, daughters, grandmothers, sisters, mentors, caretakers and friends during LFAOU’s annual “Honor Thy Mother” spring benefit. 

On May 1, more than 200 supporters gathered at the Doubletree Hotel in Skokie to listen to guest speaker and author Elizabeth Berg and to applaud the commitment and hard work of three book group leaders who shared stories from their experiences with the program. Pictured are LFAOU alumna Sonja Mixon, left, and LFAOU founder Karen Thomson.
