Author Dinner Talk
One of the largest annual fundraisers for the Sebastopol Community Cultural Center through our generous Sponsors of this beloved event. Michael Krasny, of KQED's Forum has been hosting the Annual Author Dinner Talk for 10 years, bringing us some amazing authors (Robert Reich, Michael Pollan, Alice Walker, Bud Trillin, Khaled Hosseini, Piper Kerman, and Amy Tan to name a few).
We have the VIP experience: Your evening will start at 4:30 with bubbles and appetizers under umbrellas on the terrace of the Annex. This will be your chance to finally talk with this years author and Michael Krasny and ask them all the questions you’ve piled up over the years of listening to their shows, reading their books and wondering about our country. While you are working up the nerve to get your book signed, you are welcome to browse our silent auction.
Then it will be time to get seated for dinner inside the Annex at 5:30. As dinner is winding down, we will close the silent auction, read off our list of winners, cheer, and begin the journey over to the Main Hall for the talk. Details for our event will be available soon!
Folk Art Calendar
The Junk Art Sculptures of beloved local artists Patrick Amiot and Brigitte Laurent have become a part of the Sebastopol identity. Folks have been commissioning Junk Art to commemorate and celebrate all the special moments, people and memories in their lives, each sculpture has its own story to tell. The biggest collection of sculptures is on Florence Avenue in Sebastopol, and has evolved into a trick or treating destination for a generation of Sebastopol children. These junk art sculptures define Sebastopol and mean home to our town’s children. Follow us on Facebook for short stories to learn how they came to be!
Every year, Patrick, Brigitte and friends make a calendar sharing the Junk Art Collection as a fundraiser for our local schools and community center. Local retailers join the fundraising efforts by selling the calendars to our Junk Art loving community.
