Proceeds from the event fund library innovations, capital improvements, and expand literacy projects that help make a strong public library possible.
The evening begins with a cocktail reception, an opportunity for authors and guests to mingle, followed by dinner in the historic Reading Room of the Central Library. At dinner, each author is seated with a group of library-loving guests and will be introduced briefly by the evening’s host emcees. Our 2019 hosts include Emmy Award winner Linda Schacht Gage, Pulitzer Prize author T.J. Stiles, and SF Chronicle columnist and author Vanessa Hua.
Just a few of the authors who’ll be honored this year: Michael Chabon, Oscan Villalon, Ayelet Waldman. See the entire wonderful list here.
