Rave Reviews About Elaine Weiss
Everything was amazing. I have heard nothing but absolute rave reviews about Elaine’s speech at the banquet. She did an amazing job of bringing the history of the League to life and connecting it with our organization today. There was a huge line of people waiting to buy the book from the second the booksellers were ready and Elaine signed every book with a smile and personal attention to the person she was signing it for. I was truly impressed!
