Tables of Content Fundraiser

One event on November 17, 2019 at 6:00 pm

The Elizabeth Taber Library in Marion is pleased to announce its 2019 Fall Fundraiser Event: Tables of Content, repeating an event that was highly successful in its first rendition in 2018.  On two evenings in November, generous friends of the Elizabeth Taber Library will host literary-inspired dinners in their homes to raise money for the library’s programming and resource expansion.

Each dinner is based on a book the host selects. Your choice of book and date availability will determine where you go. Lively discussion of the book will be the evening’s focal point, in addition to meeting new friends and enjoying a delicious meal. Adding a bit of mystery to the event, the location and host are not revealed until a week before the event. You won’t know who else is coming to dinner until the night of the event. What fun!

Guests are asked to choose two books from the list, in order of preference. Assignments will be made to accommodate date and book choices to the best of our abilities. Among the books for this year’s event are both new releases and several older but well-received titles. Among the titles on this year’s list are The Elephant Whisperer by Lawrence Anthony, The Library Book by Susan Orlean, The Moment of Lift by Melinda Gates, Beloved by Toni Morrison, and Quichotte by Salman Rushdie. Other titles are still being added.

The dates for this year’s event are Friday, November 8at 6:00 pm and Sunday, November 17at 6:00 pm. Tickets are $60 per person and can be purchased online on the library website, elizabethtaberlibrary.org or in person at the library, 8 Spring Street, Marion. Any dietary restrictions should be indicated on your reply form.

Tickets will be sold beginning September 22. The deadline for responding is October18, so that assignments can be made with adequate time to read the book in advance of the dinner date. Tickets are limited so sign up early to ensure a place at our table.

Questions and concerns, including any dietary restrictions, may be directed to Marthe Soden at 508-748-1277 or marthe48@icloud.com.
