Berkeley Public Library Foundation

2019 Authors Dinner

The Foundation’s Annual Authors Dinner is a unique cultural event that spotlights the Bay Area’s literary tradition. For one magical night in February, the historic downtown Central Library transforms into a stunning literary salon for 300 people featuring a lively meet-the-authors reception, an epicurean meal seated with one of our honored authors, and a festive program introducing all 29 authors. Guests take home lasting memories and a celebrated author’s book.

Our 2019 Hosts

Emmy award winner Linda Schacht Gage, two-time Pulitzer Prize winning author T.J. Stiles, and SF Chronicle columnist and author of A River of Stars Vanessa Hua

Held this year on Saturday, February 9, 2019
Central Library in Berkeley

Proceeds help fund library innovations, literacy projects, technology, and capital improvements that make
a great public library extraordinary!
