Special Events

Our annual benefit dinner and auction helps to bring nationally recognized authors to our stage, award scholarships and fellowships to emerging writers, and provide a welcoming and open space for everyone who loves books or has a drive to write.


Each year, Eat Read Hugo raises up to $210,000 to support our programs. Past special guests have included Daniel James Brown, Maria Semple, Garth Stein, Jess Walter, and Nancy Pearl.

Stay tuned for information on Eat Read Hugo 2019!
