Arianna Huffington will be the guest speaker at a Read to Grow benefit luncheon from noon to 2 p.m. April 15 at the Omni New Haven Hotel at Yale, the New Haven Register said in publishing a release online Friday evening.

Huffington, chairwoman, president and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post Media Group, will talk about her new book, “Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder,” according to a release.

U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-3, is the honorary chairwoman of the event, the release said.

The event will benefit Read to Grow, a non-profit that is in its 14th year and operates statewide, “providing more than 20,000 early literacy packets annually to mothers of newborns at hospital maternity wards,” the release said. “The Branford-based agency also distributes more than 100,000 children’s books each year through deliveries to families, schools, civic groups, and other non-profits.”

Read to Grow is offering individual tickets, group tickets and corporate sponsorships for the event, the release said. Call 203-488-6800, or email rbaker@readtogrow.org. Kosher meals by Abel Catering for Passover observance are offered by prior request, the release said. For more details about the event and Read to Grow, visit: www.readtogrow.org.
