Also mark your calendar for a special Professional Women’s Council luncheon to be hosted by Edgewood Summit on Wednesday, October 29. Award winning writer D.G. Fulford will be the featured speaker. She is the author of several best-selling books, including Designated Daughter: The Bonus Years with Mom, which she wrote with her mother, Phyllis Greene; the classic To Our Children's Children, which she wrote with her brother, Bob Greene; and The Things I'd Love to Know, the companion fill-in journal to Designated Daughter.

Ms. Fulford has been a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Today Show, Good Morning America and National Public Radio. She speaks to adult children across the country about how she found the "bonus years" with her mother to be their best. During her presentations, she shares stories about her relationship with her mother, Phyllis Greene, from their refreshing and inspiring new book, Designated Daughter: The Bonus Years with Mom. She will read excerpts from their book and divulge a humorous and hopeful message about living deliberately.
