This annual event features a book talk by Elaine Petrocelli, owner of the Book Passage bookstores.

After an elegant lunch in the Corinthian Yacht Club dining room, Elaine highlights the best books of the year and provides anecdotes and commentary about the authors, many of whom she knows personally, and the books, all of which she has read.

She discusses children’s books, literary fiction, nonfiction, genre literature, travel, gardening, and cookbooks, so there is always something of interest for everyone.

Books are sold following the lunch. There is also a very popular silent auction and a raffle.


Are you a local business that would like to donate to the Raffle or Auction?
