The Delta Memorial Endowment Fund (DMEF), which raises money for scholarships awarded by Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.-Milwaukee Alumnae Chapter, presents its 38th Annual Literary Luncheon featuring Edward Kelsey Moore, the author of the best-selling novel The Supremes at Earl’s All-You- Can-Eat.

The luncheon takes place Saturday, April 26, at 11:30 a.m. at the Italian Conference Center, 631 E. Chicago St.

Tickets cost $50 and should be made payable to Delta Memorial Endowment Fund and mailed to: DMEF, P.O. Box 1162, Milwaukee, WI 53201.

The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat is set in Plainview, Indiana.

Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat Diner is a home away from home for Odette, Clarice and Barbara Jean.

Dubbed “The Supremes” by high school pals in the tumultuous 1960s, they’ve weathered life’s storms for over four decades and counseled one another through marriage and children, happiness and the blues.

With wit, style and sublime talent, Moore brings together three devoted allies in a warm-hearted novel that celebrates female friendship and second chances.

The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat has received critical acclaim from the “BBC Radio2 Book Club,” South Africa’s Exclus1ves Books “Best Reads of the Month”, Amazon’s “Best Book of the Month” for 10 months, twice on the Independent Booksellers’ “IndieNEXT” list, and “The Power List.”

The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat debuted last year on the “New York Times Best Seller List” (in a tie) at #15.

Moore was recently named the winner of the 2014 “First Novelist Award” from the Black Caucus of the American Library Association.

The novel is available in seven languages with more translations in production.

The Literary Luncheon is the signature event of the Delta Memorial Endowment Fund and presents a variety of authors each year.
