Clifford Swan served as the lead sponsor of the Pasadena Festival of Women Authors held this past Saturday at the Pasadena Hilton. The volunteer-run Pasadena Literary Alliance hosts the annual event. The Festival celebrates the accomplishments of authors while raising funds for literary programs at community nonprofits.
Kathleen Gilmore and Lloyd Wong attended from Clifford Swan with guests of the firm. Eight award-winning authors shared their journeys as writers, answered questions, and signed books.
Like the Pasadena Literary Alliance, we believe that literature has the power to build bridges and that literacy is the first step in that process. Literacy is important in the financial world as well, which is why we are committed to helping strengthen financial literacy. We are happy to have again supported this bridge-building event.
