The Library Foundation of Martin County’s biggest fundraiser of the year used to be a tried-and-true gala until a few years ago when the foundation opted to exchange dancing for dialogue, creating A Literary Affair.

Intimate and unique, A Literary Affair hosts BookMania! authors for an evening of libations, fine dining and literary conversation. This year’s event will be on March 2, the evening before BookMania!, at the new Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa in Jensen Beach.

The evening affair starts with a cocktail hour, when guests can mingle with all 17 authors, followed by a three-course gourmet dinner. “What’s unique about the dinner is that each table will have at least one author at it to engage in conversation about their book and their process of writing a book,” said May Smyth, foundation patron. “There is no band or dancing, we work to keep the room quiet so we can have intimate conversation with the authors.”

“A Literary Affair is a key fundraiser for The Library Foundation of Martin County,” said Stacy Ranieri, the foundation’s president. “BookMania! is a free, public event, however, the funds we raise at A Literary Affair help underwrite transportation and accommodation expenses for the 17 featured BookMania! authors, as well as other community literacy programs.”
