Author and screenwriter Delia Ephron was the featured speaker at the 3rd annual Norma’s Literary Luncheon on February 5, 2015. One hundred eighty guests attended the memorial tribute to longtime El Camino Hospital benefactor Norma Melchor and contributed more than $75,000 to support women’s mental health services. Ephron’s touching and humorous account of growing up in a chaotic household underscored the importance of expanding programs to provide psychological healing for more women and a better future for their children. The event was underwritten by a gift from Norma’s husband Jack Melchor and organized by chairs Judie Wolken and Betsy Dawes. Planning is already underway for the 4th annual literary luncheon, which will be held on February 4, 2016 at Sharon Heights Golf & Country Club. MIreille Guiliano, author of French Women Don’t Get Facelifts, will be the featured speaker.
