We are so excited to share the news that New York Times bestselling author of Where the Crawdads Sing, Delia Owens, will keynote Literacy Together’s 13th Annual Authors for Literacy Dinner & Auction on Thursday October 28, 2021 at the Crowne Plaza Resort Expo Center.
Where the Crawdads Sing is her first novel, with more than 11 million copies sold worldwide and over 2 ½ years on the New York Times Bestseller List, it is soon to be a major motion picture.
Proceeds from the Authors for Literacy Dinner & Auction will benefit Literacy Together’s programs to help people rise out of poverty and get better-paying jobs to support their families. Currently, Literacy Together supports more than 250 students and over 4,300 book recipients in Buncombe County.
The Authors for Literacy Dinner & Auction begins with a cocktail hour for general admission guests while our Platinum Corporate Partners and other VIP pass-holders join the featured author for a private reception. During the reception, the author will be available to answer questions, take photographs, and personally inscribe books. Next, all guests enjoy a three-course dinner, a presentation by a Literacy Together student, and a keynote presentation by the featured author. The evening will close with a book signing for the general admission guests managed by Malaprop’s Bookstore.
