About the Literary Lions Gala
The KCLS Foundation's annual fundraiser, in its 25th year, is the library event of the year. More than 700 community members join together to raise funds for programs and services at the King County Library System.
Guests have the opportunity to have books signed by their favorite authors, shop at the pop-up bookstore, enjoy a delicious dinner, and mingle with other book lovers - all to support a great cause. In 2017, the Literary Lions Gala raised nearly $400,000 for KCLS, helping to fund the beloved Summer Reading program.
The Literary Lions Gala also features the debut of the 2018 Author Salon event series, with tickets first offered for sale exclusively to Gala attendees. Author Salons are intimate events with popular authors at venues around the Seattle Area, held throughout the spring and summer. Attendees can get to know their favorite author while enjoying delicious food and wine, all at a unique venue. This year's Salons will include authors such as Jamie Ford, JA Jance, Martha Brockenbrough, and Rachel Yang, at venues such as Bis on Main, El Gaucho, and Swiftwater Cellars.
