Joyce Carol Oates has expressed a deep regard for libraries and library staff who have played an important part in her life from the time she was a child and throughout her adulthood. We are honored to be able to share this important evening with Librarians and Library Staff from around the Bay Area and beyond.

“Dear Librarians…Always I feel a surge of affection and an excited intellectual interest as I enter such shrines to the printed word staffed by invariably kindly, helpful, warmly friendly and engaged individuals”.
