Over 350 people attended the Foundation’s the 15th Annual Authors Dinner. It was an unforgettable evening with two-time Pulitzer-Prize winning author T.J. Stiles as this year’s Honorary Chair. Thirty-two Bay Area literary luminaries were honored. The Foundation also presented the Fred and Pat Cody Award to library champion Linda Schacht Gage for her 15 years as the Authors Dinner event chair and 20 years of leadership and service with the Foundation. Event proceeds support library innovations, new literacy projects, and It’s Time for Central, our current campaign to bring building improvements to the downtown library.
