WELCOME Celebrating 40 Years of Kidney Health Dear Friends, Welcome to Authors Luncheon Twenty-thirteen. The Arizona Women's Board is committed to upholding Erma's example of helping others and bringing friends together to support our cause. Because of our supporters, we are able to help Arizona's kidney patients through NKFaz, PCH Bombeck Dialysis Center and kidney disease research at T-Gen. Thank you to our authors, patrons and advertisers for making this support possible. We are grateful for each of you joining us today. It gives us great pleasure to be celebrating our 40th year as a Women's Board. In 1973 Carol Bidstrup, Administrative Director of the new Arizona Kidney Foundation, called a group of her friends together for the first meeting of the Women’s Advisory Board. With two young sons having an inherited kidney Lenni Griego and Julie Vogel disease, it was Carol's goal to bring awareness to and support for this debilitating disease. With the help of Margie Denton, the Board raised monies to support kidney research, patient education and serve the financial needs of kidney patients. Their first attempt at fund raising was collecting S & H green stamps and redeeming them for cash. Peggy Clifford held the first garage sale emphasizing Indian baskets, pottery and jewelry. Janis Lyon and Dodie Johnes, also interested in Indian artifacts, brought credibility to the yearly auctions. When Glenna Shapiro became a member of the Board in the late 1970s she asked friend, Erma Bombeck to give her support for the cause. Enthused about their mission, Erma suggested a luncheon featuring her friends and fellow authors. Harriet Friedland chaired the first Authors Luncheon in 1980 at Camelback Inn. Thirty-four luncheons and $10 million dollars later, the rest is history. We are forever grateful to our Founding Members and to all Arizona Women's Board members since. We salute and thank them today for their service and commitment. Sincerely,

Julie Vogel, Luncheon Chair 6

The Arizona Women’s Board refers to themselves as Lizzies, an affectionate term that evolved from the use of the lizard as their symbol. Why? The lizard has the world’s most efficient kidneys and symbolizes the desire for healthy kidneys for all individuals. 14


M EG WOLITZER Luncheon Emcee The Interestings The Chicago Tribune and Newsday have likened Meg Wolitzer’s ability to tackle big American issues to that of Tom Wolfe, Jonathan Franzen and Rick Moody, while Vanity Fair has called her a “stealth feminist” who “expertly teases out the socio-sexual power dynamics between men and women.” Regularly invoking comparisons to the great male titans of American literature, Wolitzer retains a voice that is all her own and one that is unafraid to challenge the very canon to which she is compared. Wolitzer now delivers an ambitious and career-culminating novel about early talent and what becomes of it; and the quiet envy we may feel even toward the people we love most. Wide in scope and populated with complex and appealing characters, The Interestings chronicles the lives of six teenagers who become lifelong friends—beginning at a summer camp for the artistically talented and following them through adulthood in a changing New York City that spans the 70s, 80s, 90s and onward. Over the decades, these characters realize that not everyone can sustain what seemed to be their adolescent specialness, and they can’t help but see the divergence in their respective talents, fortunes, and degrees of life satisfaction. Meg Wolitzer's previous novels include The Uncoupling, The Ten-Year Nap, The Position, and The Wife. Her short fiction has appeared in The Best American Short Stories and The Pushcart Prize. She was awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, and the John Gardner Book Award from Binghamton University. Along with singer-songwriter Suzzy Roche, Ms. Wolitzer is currently a guest artist in the Princeton Atelier program at Princeton University. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Meg Wolitzer lives in New York City.



D ELIA EPHRON Sister Mother Husband Dog My story, sort of … I grew up in Beverly Hills, California. Graduated from Barnard, and while there fell in love with New York City. I had parents who were screenwriters and have three sisters. Made several detours in life until I wrote How to Eat Like a Child, 500 words about children and food, which was published in the New York Times Magazine, and that was when I realized I was a writer. That article became a book, which, to my great good fortune, became a best seller. I became a contributing editor at New York Magazine, met and married Jerome Kass (screenwriter and playwright) and then moved back to Los Angeles and lived there for many years until I moved back to my beloved Manhattan. My passion is mostly work. I am happy at my desk. I have always written in many forms—I love bouncing among them—and have written adult novels, humor, children and young adult books, as well as movies, plays, and occasional magazine pieces. But I also love to cook, love to bake especially, and am extremely fond of watching television, watching tennis, and going to the movies. My husband and I have an FWD (fluffy white dog) with six names— Honey Pansy Cornflower Bernice Mambo Kass.

Some Straight Talk From

John Gogolak ... ❑ Are you comfortable with the investment relationship you currently have with your financial advisor and his/her firm? ❑ Are you confident in the underlying investment philosophy with which your monies are being invested/managed? ❑ Are investment results being reported clearly and simply, allowing you to easily follow and monitor the performance of your investment account(s)? ❑ Are you being made fully aware of the investment management costs you are incurring?

John A. Gogolak

Senior Vice President/Investments

(602) 952-2500 (866) 677-5992 Mr. Gogolak, a Senior Vice President/Investments with Stifel’s Phoenix, Arizona office, serves as a financial advisor to high net worth individuals, as well as the retirement plans for small/ medium-sized corporations. Mr. Gogolak manages and consults on approximately $405.6 million in assets. He received his A.B. in economics from Dartmouth College in 1979 and his M.B.A. in finance from Columbia University in 1983. He is assisted by Ms. Annie Servis, who has served as his Registered Client Service Associate since 1987.

These are important questions and are at the heart and core of every investment relationship. If you answered the questions in the affirmative, you should consider yourself most fortunate, as I would contend that the majority of investors are being poorly served. If some or all of the questions were answered in the negative, I would welcome the opportunity to share my investment philosophy with you – a philosophy that is thoroughly rooted in being straightforward and manageable – a philosophy that is deeply committed to keeping investment management costs low – a philosophy that has helped me help my clients navigate through the many bouts of optimism and pessimism that have defined our fixed income and equity markets over the past 25 years, since I began my career as a financial advisor. Additionally, I would welcome sharing with you how I report client investment results and investment management costs. Transparency is an obligation, not an option – I take it seriously and I have always fully embraced it. I take great pride in preparing and providing my clients with reports that are clear, easy to understand and simple to follow. While no one has a crystal ball to know what the future holds, experience, discipline, and conviction are paramount during uncertain, trying economic times like these.

WALLY LAMB We Are Water With such New York Times bestsellers as She’s Come Undone and The Hour I First Believed, Wally Lamb has won the hearts of millions of readers. We Are Water, Lamb’s first full-scale novel in five years, is another probing exploration of contemporary themes, tempered with the wisdom and empathy that has marked all of this master storyteller’s work. Rooted in the world of a troubled family and driven by riveting drama, this warm-hearted, emotionally powerful novel explores childhood trauma, abuse, and family dynamics, as well as issues of class, race, and cultural inclusion. The impending marriage of Annie Oh to another woman has stirred up many conflicting emotions in the family. Her three children from her 27-year marriage have varying responses to their mother’s future wife, Viveca, a sophisticated art dealer who has helped make Annie, an outsider artist, a great success. Annie’s psychologist ex-husband, Orion, says he is fine—but is he? Yet, as this domestic turmoil plays out, a larger, potentially more destructive drama surfaces. Viveca discovers a painting by a well-known African American outsider artist in the Oh’s home, and this serendipitous find rocks the family’s foundations in unexpected ways. With a Pandora’s box of secrets unleashed, old hurts resurface and past anger is renewed. Unfolding with humor and compassion, the novel vividly captures the flawed humanity of these unforgettable characters as they struggle to find hope and redemption in the aftermath of trauma and loss. Wally Lamb is the author of four previous novels. His first two works of fiction, She’s Come Undone and I Know This Much is True, were both number one New York Times bestsellers and selections of Oprah’s Book Club. Lamb edited Couldn’t Keep it to Myself and I’ll Fly Away, two volumes of essays from students in his writing workshop at York Correctional Institution, a women’s prison in Connecticut, where he has been a volunteer facilitator for fifteen years. He lives in Connecticut with his wife, Christine. The Lambs are the parents of three sons.

Grateful supporters of The Arizona Women’s Board and kidney research.




The life force of Erma Bombeck was always optimism and hope. It inspired her throughout her family life and her career. It sustained her in later years when she was ill. She was convinced that out there somewhere were people so selfless, and families so compassionate, they would commit to the ultimate act of love—a gift of life. “The real heroes and heroines are the patients who are hanging tough and the donors who are faced with hard decisions and give humanity a good name. We are about preserving life. It is indeed a gift.” Erma Bombeck Erma had hoped to be able to do even more. Today, the members of the Arizona Women’s Board, and the authors who join them, continue Erma’s Legacy. They indeed should be honored for many years of “preserving life.” Their gifts for patient care go beyond Erma’s hope. Congratulations!

For four decades the Arizona Women’s Board has been raising funds to ensure that programs like ours can continue to provide the lifesaving assistance Arizonans so desperately need. The National Kidney Foundation of Arizona salutes the dedication and hard work that goes into executing Arizona’s finest luncheon. More than 8,000 people are on dialysis in Arizona this year. More than 600,000 Arizonans have chronic kidney disease, and yet sadly only 10% of those know it. Because of the efforts of The Arizona Women’s Board, over the past 15 years the Arizona Kidney Foundation has provided over 110,000 individual lifesaving services to these patients, neighbors, family members and friends. You are all extraordinary and compassionate, and we are truly grateful.

A gift of laughter became a legacy of hope. Erma Bombeck gave the world a great deal of wisdom and no shortage of smiles through her insightful observations. To see so many authors give so generously of their own talents in Erma’s name today is a truly fitting tribute.

Nearly 2,000 Arizonans are currently waiting for a kidney transplant to save their life. When someone with kidney failure receives a kidney transplant especially from a living donor, there are immediate results. The new kidney begins to remove toxins from the recipient’s body within hours, many other health complications that come with kidney failure reverse or slow, the recipient’s energy returns and he or she no longer needs to schedule their life around a dialysis machine.

Fifty years ago, the National Kidney Foundation of Arizona (NKF AZ) was founded with the purpose of fundraising for kidney patients who couldn’t afford the dialysis that would sustain their lives. Today, we provide emergency patient aid, kidney disease education and organ donation awareness to Arizonans across the state. National Kidney Foundation of Arizona programs serve not only those who suffer from kidney disease, but those who may have never otherwise known they were at risk. Join us this fall in celebrating half a century of Kidney Success! Visit to learn about our 50-day campaign occurring now and see how far NKF AZ and the kidney community have come since 1963.

ST. FRANCIS XAVIER: BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE We are so excited and have truly been blessed. Due to the generousity of our spiritual community we have completed our grammar school. Every student has a brand new classroom in which to learn and grow. (The students are more excited about their big, bright, new gym!) While we are thrilled and so excited about our progress, we still have miles to go. In addition to the new grammar school, we will be adding a parish hall, administration offices, important and necessary improvements to the church and a breath taking prayer garden.

We invite you to come and visit our spectacular new school and see 653 enthusiastic students getting a great education.
