It’s Tea Time  for the Boca Raton Branch of the National League of American Pen Women.  Every October the Boca branch hosts an elegant Tea, inviting area female Artists, Authors and Musicians to come discover what being a member of Pen Women is all about. This serves as their annual recruitment for new members.

 

The Boca Raton Branch of the National League of American Pen Women is a prestigious organization of professional women in the Arts – Published Writers, Authors, Poets, Musical Composers and Award winning Artists. The Boca Raton branch is one of the largest in the country and will be celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2015.

 

 

NLAPW’s corporate headquarters is based in Washington, D.C. in an historic building, once the residence of Robert Todd Lincoln, son of President Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln. It oversees branches all over the United States. The league boasts membership of such prominent ladies as Eleanor Roosevelt, Erma Bombeck, and Edna Hibel. Vinnie Ream, the only woman to sculpt President Lincoln from life, was an early member of NLAPW. Her statue of Lincoln now stands in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.
