When Richard Paul Evans wrote the #1 best-seller, The Christmas Box, he never intended on becoming an internationally known author. Southeastern Community College is excited to announce Evans as the guest speaker at the SCC Foundation Christmas Luncheon held at Vineland Station on Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 11:30am.
His quiet story of parental love and the true meaning of Christmas made history when it became the #1 hardcover and paperback book in the nation. Since then, more than eight million copies of The Christmas Box have been printed. The Emmy award-winning CBS television movie based on The Christmas Box starred Maureen O’Hara and Richard Thomas. Two more of Evans’s books were produced by Hallmark and starred such well-known actors as James Earl Jones, Vanessa Redgrave, Naomi Watts, Mary McDonough and Academy award winner Ellen Burstyn. He has since written 12 consecutive New York Times bestsellers and is one of the few authors in history to have hit both the fiction and non-fiction bestseller lists.
Tickets are available for purchase by calling the SCC Foundation office at 910-642-7141 ext. 308 or you can stop by the college. Tickets are $35.00/person or you can purchase a table of 8 for $250.00. Lunch to be served.
Tickets will go fast so make sure you call early.
All proceeds from the event will help fund the SCC Success Scholarship, a free tuition and fee scholarship for recent high school graduates in Columbus County.
