Humphreys to speak at Friends of Library luncheon

Friends of the Weatherford Public Library announce its 27th annual spring luncheon speaker will be Suzie Humphreys.

Humphreys’ background is as varied as her audiences, from administrative secretary to television talk show host, to 20 years in radio. She has hobnobbed with movie stars and politicians interviewed the great and the “near” great. She has made hundreds of commercials, done musical comedy and motion pictures.

She has been fired, been broke, been disappointed, been a petrified expectant mother at 40 years old and lived her life with a passion for learning not only to be better, but to see things differently.

Humphreys received one of the longest standing ovations on record from the National Speakers Association when she spoke to 2,500 of her peers at their convention in Palm Springs, Calif. In 2002, at their national convention, she received the Council of Peers Award of Excellence and was inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame. In 2004 Humphreys was inducted into the Texas Radio Hall of Fame.

Get ready to laugh, live, and learn with Suzie Humphreys. The event is 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Friday, April 5, at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center at 1400 Texas Drive. Tickets are $25 each. To purchase tickets call Gail Greenfield at 817-594-4473.

Proceeds help the Friends of the Library fund the Summer Reading Program for the Kids as well as many other endeavors.
