Authors Guild Dinner, with Emcee John Lithgow, to Honor NPR’s Terry Gross

On May 23, 2011, the Authors Guild’s annual celebration of writers and writing will be held at the Edison Ballroom in New York, where John Lithgow will serve as emcee. During the gala dinner, the Guild will honor NPR’s Terry Gross for her extraordinary service to the American literary community by bringing well-informed conversations with thousands of authors to Fresh Air’s vast audience.

Now in its nineteenth year, the Authors Guild Dinner benefits the Authors Guild Foundation, which promotes the role of copyright and free speech in maintaining a vibrant literary culture, and the Authors League Fund, which has provided vital financial support to book authors and dramatists in need for more than 90 years. Co-chairs of the event include Judy Blume, Mary Higgins Clark, Patricia Cornwell, James Gleick, John and Renee Grisham, Garrison Keillor, John R. MacArthur, Mary Pope Osborne, Scott Turow, and Stuart Woods.
