Best-selling and award-winning author Dennis Lehane will be the keynote author for this year’s King County Library System Foundation 20th Anniversary Literary Lions Gala. Three of his novels – Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone and Shutter Island – have been adapted into award-winning films and his new book, Live by Night, was just released and has garnered rave reviews.
One of the more interesting items available at the Gala are the Author Salons. Tickets to the Salons are sold for a fixed price and in limited quantities, so you have the opportunity, in a private home or intimate venue, to delve into the authors’ experience over conversation and food!
The KCLS Foundation funds programs that reach out and encourage residents of all ages to enjoy reading and learning. In 2012, more than 200,000 children, youth and adults benefitted from the Foundation-supported programs.
