GREENWICH, Conn. — Jane Bryant Quinn, a best-selling author and founding editorial director of Daily Voice, will give advice on "how to make your money last" as the featured speaker at the Friends of Nathaniel Witherell’s Spring Luncheon in Greenwich.
The event will be at the Greenwich Country Club, at 19 Doubling Road, on Wednesday, May 24, at 11:30 a.m.
“We know that this will be an exceptional event as Jane Bryant Quinn is knowledgeable, interesting, and relates very well to people who find the world of finance and investment sometimes daunting,” says Karen Sadik-Khan, president of the Friends of Nathaniel Witherell. “We couldn’t be more excited!”
Quinn's latest book, "How to Make Your Money Last: The Indispensable Retirement Guide," was just updated for 2017 and will be given to all those who attend.
Proceeds from the luncheon will benefit The Nathaniel Witherell, a short-term rehabilitation and long-term nursing care center owned by the Town of Greenwich.
The tickets are $200 for a Friend level; $300 for Best Friend; and $450 for Best Friends Forever.
Quinn, an Emmy Award-winning commentator on personal finance, wrote long-running columns for Newsweek magazine, Good Housekeeping, and Woman’s Day, and a newspaper column syndicated to 250 newspapers by the Washington Post.
In her talk, she will share stories of how she gained her financial expertise through trial and error.
“For me, learning about money was a slow and sometimes painful job. No one is born with a mind for personal finance," she says on her website. "Everything I learned, I learned by watching, reading, doing, and—yes—making some awful mistakes.”
Quinn has also worked extensively in television – as a financial correspondent on the “CBS Morning News” and the “CBS Evening News with Dan Rather.” On PBS, she hosted her own program, “Take Charge!” Currently, she writes a monthly column for the AARP Bulletin.
Her book, "Making the Most of Your Money NOW," a comprehensive guide to personal finance, is now in its third edition. In 2010, she co-founded the Daily Voice, which brings local news to communities online.
