Friends of the San Francisco Public Library is pleased to announce that the 2017 Library Laureates Benefit Gala, Library Love Stories, will take place on Friday, 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 Peter Booth Wiley, author, publisher and Library champion, along with 35 luminaries of the literary world

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.

TIME:  7:00 PM Reception followed by Dinner
