All guests enjoy a three-course dinner, a presentation by a Literacy Council student, and a keynote presentation by the featured author. The evening will close with a book signing for the general admission guests. Funds raised at the Authors for Literacy Dinner & Silent Auction benefit the Literacy Council’s programs that teach reading, writing, spelling, and English language skills to individuals in Buncombe County. We serve over 300 students and over 1,250 book recipients annually through four programs: Adult Education, English for Speakers of Other Languages, the Augustine Project, which serves low-income children, and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. We give opportunities to people who don’t believe they have a second chance to learn. Besides being a principal fundraiser, Authors for Literacy is also a vehicle to promote the Literacy Council’s mission: to increase comprehensive literacy and English language skills through specialized instruction by trained tutors and access to literacy resources. The event increases community awareness of our programming and recruits new volunteers, donors, and board members.
