The Republican Women of Clifton (RWC) welcomes Peter G. Pollak, author of five thrillers, to present at its May meeting. The event will take place Wednesday, May 18, at Fairview Elementary School, 5815 Ox Road, Fairfax Station. New member orientation will begin at 6:45 p.m., followed by the social half-hour at 7 p.m. and presentation at 7:30 p.m.
Pollak began writing in retirement, and is fulfilling an interest developed in his teens. He is a graduate of Oberlin College, with a degree in history, and earned his graduate and doctorate degrees from University of Albany in history and education. He taught at Albany, served as editor of two newspapers, and created his own business called readMedia, a press release delivery service. His first book, “An Expendable Man” was self-published in 2009. Since then, he has written four more books, his most recent, the thriller, “A House Divided,” the subject of this presentation. It explores the threat of terrorism, anti-Semitism, moral relativism, and the lack of leadership on college campuses through the experiences of a student and her family. “We think members and guests alike will enjoy learning about the leaderless environment on some college campuses that is the backdrop for this story,” noted president Bonnie Burkhardt.
Pollak divides his time between Baltimore and Hamilton County, N.Y. where he lives with his wife. He has two children and four grandchildren. Books will be available for sale and signing after the meeting.
New RWC members are invited to orientation at 6:45 p.m., preceding the social time, to meet officers and committee chairs and learn about local opportunities for conservative activism.
Attendees are invited to contribute $5 at the door for the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors of our fallen heroes, a 2016 RWC charity partner.
