A Day with Santa Fe Authors

A Day with Santa Fe Authors: Memoir and Mystery is a fundraising event to be held in association with Partners in Education Foundation for the Santa Fe Public Schools, a 501c3 non-profit organization.
The purpose of this event is to raise funds for Reading Quest, a local program whose mission is to "support children who are having trouble reading to  become strong, enthusiastic readers,” and to connect readers with local authors and book lovers.  Please join us....

Event Details:
Date: Saturday, September 7, 2024
Time: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Location: Santa Fe Women’s Club
(1616 Old Pecos Trail, Santa Fe, NM 87505)
Event Ticket Cost: $99 per person (lunch will be provided)

The day will be comprised of two half-day sessions--the morning devoted to memoir, the afternoon to mystery--each of which will include a panel of four women authors reading from their works and sharing their thoughts and feelings about why they write, why they write what they write, their writing life, obstacles they have faced as authors, and many other thoughts, feelings, and experiences.

During each session, the audience will be encouraged to ask questions. Between the two sessions, the dialogue will continue as the audience and authors chat over gourmet box lunches. At designated times throughout the day, the authors will inscribe their books.

The keynote speaker is the beloved Anne Hillerman, daughter of the equally beloved mystery writer Tony Hillerman and author of nine New York Times best-selling mysteries.

We are seeking sponsors to assist us in hosting this event, which works to support the vital and inspiring work of Reading Quest.  Sponsors will receive preferred seating at the event, and their names and logos (if desired) will be featured on the event website, promotional materials, and social media posts. You can also have business cards or postcards placed in the event book bags.
