Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. to host a Virtual Literary Cafe event May 2

The Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. presents the Virtual Literary Cafe on Sunday, May 2. The event from 2 to 3:30 p.m. will feature author Jennifer Bridgeforth, back by popular demand, talking about her book, "Wisdom in Pieces: Motivational Moments for Real Life."

Wisdom is Pieces showcases "real life stories of turning pain into passion and indecision to clarity." It dives into the "true meaning of our innate ability to completely change our experiences from the inside out." The Virtual Literary Cafe promises to leave audiences eager to engage in spirited discussions about both the book and the inspiration behind the creation of the book.

"We are excited to have Jennifer Bridgeforth join us for our Literary Cafe," said Dr. Sharon Cross, president of the Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. "She brings high energy as she shares wisdom gained from her personal experiences - experiences that we can all relate to. Her book, 'Wisdom in Pieces: Motivational Moments for Real Life,' is the uplifting inspiration needed in this moment."
