Thank you to all who joined us at the 29th Annual Authors Guild Foundation Gala hosted by Samantha Bee and honoring Louise Erdrich, Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, and One World’s Chris Jackson. We were so grateful for the chance to gather digitally with friends in celebration of our honorees and the power that literature has to transform our society.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and donors, we were able to present the virtual gala free to all.
The evening also featured appearances from over a dozen brilliant authors sharing the books that have inspired them. Click here to see how many recommended books you’ve read or to add to your to-read list!
Our work is made possible by the support of our passionate community, and we are honored by your continued partnership to ensure we can serve writers and honor their role as national leaders for years to come.
Thank you—and see you next year in person!​​​​​​​
