The start of summer means Verse & Vino is in sight! The committee began planning almost as soon as last year’s wine bottles were cleared, and the annual Book Expo America marks the start of one of the most important components: the search for the magical mix of five New York Times best-selling authors to headline the evening. This year presenting sponsor PNC Bank joined Foundation staff to meet publishers and hear from hundreds of authors releasing books this year. Be the first to hear about our 2019 author lineup by following us on Facebook!
The sixth annual Verse & Vino will be November 7, 2019, and a limited number of book club tables and sponsorships are now available. Individual seats will go on sale later this summer, but the only way to guarantee seating together for a group is to purchase a book club table for ten – and these tables will sell out. Also, don’t forget to add book bundles, a convenient tote of each of the featured authors’ latest titles, ready for you at your seat. Book bundles allow you to spend less time in the book line and more time mingling with authors and friends.
Another option to consider is an individual sponsorship. This ticket level includes two seats, an invitation to a VIP pre-reception with the authors, and a book bundle. As always, tickets at all levels include a delicious meal, program, author signing, and unlimited vino.
