Friends Author Series


This fundraiser, established in 2011, brings popular authors to Stamford. The Friends partner with Elm Street Books, an independent book store in New Canaan, to sell books at the events. As part of the experience, the Friends feature local restaurants, which donate appetizers for a wine reception beforehand.

To date, this series has attracted top flight authors and the reputation for the program has grown tremendously. With a modest ticket price of $15, it has developed a buzz as a fun night out and a chance to hear exciting authors.
