Nion McEvoy and Camilla Smith are Co-Chairs of the 2017 Library Laureates Benefit Gala, Library Love Stories, which will take place on April 7, 2017. Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love and following the 2016 sold-out event, we will again gather under the nautilus at the Main Library. Join us as we celebrate and honor author, publisher, and Library champion Peter Booth Wiley; poet and publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti (our first Honorary Library Laureate); and 35 other luminaries of the literary world.

DATE:  April 7, 2017
TIME:  7:00 PM Reception followed by Dinner
LOCATION:  Main Library — 100 Larkin Street, San Francisco

Featuring specialty cocktails, fine wine and a spectacular dinner in intimate salons, the highlight of this one-of-a-kind evening is mixing, mingling and dining with an author at each table.

Please join host and supporters Sarah & Jason Jones, Ruth & William Isenberg, Barbro & Bernard Osher, Roselyne Chroman Swig, Peter Wiley, Donna Miller Casey, Helen & Allan Ridley, Diane Wilsey and other philanthropists, community leaders, authors and corporate partners in support of the partnership of Friends and the San Francisco Public Library that makes the exceptional difference for our community by offering a premier library system in San Francisco.
