In 2015, the APL Foundation started Albany Reads, a fundraiser book party. Albany residents hosted book parties at home for friends and neighbors, and all the parties converged at the Washington Avenue Branch after for dessert. Our Literary Legends could meet library patrons and each other at the party. Everyone at the Foundation agrees that the gathering at Washington Ave branch was the best part, and so Albany Reads is now An Evening with the Authors.
The 2018 An Evening with the Authors will take place on Thursday, June 7th, 2018 at the APL Washington Ave Branch, 2nd Floor Community Room.
