Authors Dinner 2019

The Foundation’s Annual Authors Dinner is a unique cultural event that spotlights the Bay Area’s literary tradition. For one night only, the historic downtown Central Library transforms into a beautiful literary salon 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.
