Lisa Birnbach will be bringing the "prep" to Greenwich Country Club. The author of the bestselling "The Official Preppy Handbook" and its recent follow-up, "True Prep," will be a guest speaker at the sixth annual Greenwich United Way Sole Sisters Luncheon on April 14.
Birnbach was 21 when she wrote the original "Preppy Handbook." It was a huge success, spending a 38-week run at the No. 1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list. She also has co-written 20 other books, including "Lisa Birnbach's College Book."
About 300 supporters and members are expected to attend the luncheon. The United Sole Sisters is made up of more than 150 women dedicated to learning and teaching within the Greenwich community. Funds raised by the group will go to the Greenwich United Way. Co-chairs Giovanna Miller and Susan Wohlforth said the group has raised nearly $500,000 to supper the United Way over the years.
