About the event

The Authors for Literacy Dinner & Silent Auction will begin with a cocktail hour and silent auction to include distinctive art and crafts, autographed and rare books, and priceless opportunities to enjoy excursions in Asheville and beyond. Following the cocktail hour, event guests will enjoy a three-course dinner and presentation by a current Literacy Council student. Our featured author will then give the keynote presentation and autograph guests’ books. Book sales will be managed by Malaprop’s Bookstore & Café. General admission tickets are $75.

Event guests may upgrade tickets in order to attend a VIP reception with the author. This reception will include the opportunity to spend one-on-one time taking pictures and talking with the keynote and emcee, as well as enjoy hors d’oeuvres overlooking downtown Asheville. VIP passes cost $500 and include two general admission tickets, as well as tickets to the VIP reception.
