Author's Luncheon & Fundraiser  

The Words Alive Author’s Luncheon & Fundraiser is our signature event. Celebrating its 16th year, the event has featured world-renowned authors such as Salman Rushdie, Jodi Picoult, Isabel Allende, and most recently Emma Donoghue. This unique event invites patrons to meet their most beloved authors while witnessing an intimate conversation about each author’s life, writing, and featured novel — all while supporting the development of children, teens, and families in our community.

Taking place each fall, the Author’s Luncheon is attended by over 400 patrons that include book lovers, philanthropists, educators, civic organizations, and people invested in creating a thriving San Diego. This elegant, intellectual, and fast-paced fundraising event helps Words Alive raise over $200,000 annually.

Thank you to each and every person who made this event possible, including the Words Alive Event Committee, Host Committee, Words Alive Volunteers, Warwick’s, Seth Lerer, and all of our sponsors listed below. Enjoy these images from this year’s event, and we look forward to seeing you again.
