POSTED: February 7, 2013 12:30 a.m.

Fawn Germer, best-selling author, international speaker and four-time Pulitzer Prize nominee will be the featured guest at the Feb. 12 WomenSource meeting, “Motivating Women: Encouraging Professional and Personal Success.”

Attendees will have two opportunities to hear Germer as she presents “The Power to Lead” luncheon, beginning at noon at the Quinlan Visual Arts Center. The cost is $25 per person or $200 for a reserved table of eight.

The “Leaders Among Us” dinner will be held at 6 p.m. at The Loft in Scott’s. A WomenSource members and sponsors reception is set for 5:30 p.m. The cost is $45 per person or $400 for a reserved table of eight.

The cost to attend both events is $70 per person or $600 for a reserved table of eight at each event.

Germer is the best-selling author and global leadership speaker who has interviewed such accomplished women as Hillary Clinton, Jane Goodall, Susan Sarandon, Martina Navratilova and Carly Fiorina, along with two Nobel Peace
Prize winners, Academy Award winners, Olympic athletes, CEOs, prime ministers and world presidents.

She is the best-selling author of seven books and a four-time, Pulitzer-nominated journalist. She worked as an investigative reporter for The Washington Post, U.S. News and World Report and The Miami Herald.

As an editor, she struggled as a female manager in a male-dominated environment. She sought the mentoring wisdom that led to her first book, “Hard Won Wisdom.” The book was rejected 15 times, but perseverance pushed it to best-seller lists and onto Oprah Winfrey’s show, which Winfrey called “very inspiring.”

Germer’s second book, “Mustang Sallies,” hit best-seller lists within two weeks of its release.

She is an international speaker on leadership and performance issues and recently presented at the Harvard Business School’s leadership conference, in China, Taiwan, Spain and throughout corporate America.
