MARION - The Elizabeth Taber Library has announced its 2019 Fall Fundraiser Event: TABLES OF CONTENT, repeating an event that was highly successful in its first rendition in 2018. On Friday, Nov. 8, and Sunday, Nov. 17, generous friends of the Elizabeth Taber Library will host literary-inspired dinners in their homes to raise money for the library’s programming and resource expansion.
Each dinner is based on a book the host selects. Your choice of book and date availability will determine where you go. Lively discussion of the book will be the evening’s focal point, in addition to meeting new friends and enjoying a delicious meal. Adding a bit of mystery to the event, the location and host are not revealed until a week before the event. You won’t know who else is coming to dinner until the night of the event.
Guests are asked to choose two books from the list, in order of preference. Assignments will be made to accommodate date and book choices to the best of the organizers’ abilities.
Book list for Friday, Nov. 8, at 6 p.m.
The Elephant Whisperer – Lawrence Anthony
The Library Book – Susan Orlean
Quichotte – Salmn Rushdie
