Eat, drink, and be regaled! At this “moveable feast,” attendees meet and dine with regional authors, who move from table to table to converse with guests. It's like a banquet with eight delicious main courses of books and talented writers.
Participating authors (and their current titles) include: Belle Boggs (The Gulf), Jim Hamilton (The Last Entry), Karla FC Holloway (A Death in Harlem), Bruce Holsinger (The Gifted School), AnnaJean Mayhew (Tomorrow’s Bread), Diane C. McPhail (The Abolitionist’s Daughter), Jon Sealy (The Edge Of America), and Amber Smith (Something Like Gravity).
Bibliofeast is open to the public. Tickets are $55.00 for WNBA members, $70.00 for non-members, and include a 3-course buffet dinner and pre-dinner cocktails.

Started in October 2007 National Reading Group Month (NRGM) is an initiative aimed to foster the values that reading groups encourage. This includes the camaraderie of shared reading, and the appreciation of literature as a way to transmit culture and advance civic engagement. WNBA chapters organize public events in their local communities. A portion of the proceeds from select NRGM events is donated to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF (unicefusa.org).
