As previously explained, we have decided that all author presentations this year will be made on a virtual basis because of the Covid-19 surge. Tickets will be available initally only for the entire series – $100 for Members for all four presentations and $140 for Non-Members for all four presentations. A decision will be made within the next few weeks whether to make tickets available to particular presentations.
EVERYONE PURCHASING A TICKET WILL BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE A $100 GIFT CARD FROM CAPITAL GRILLE, ONE OF OUR SPONSORS. A DRAWING WILL BE MADE AT THE END OF EACH PRESENTATION TO SELECT THE PERSON TO RECEIVE THE GIFT CARD.
OUR OTHER SPONSORS ARE NAPLES MACFRIENDS USER GROUP, JOHN R. WOOD PROPERTIES, STOCK DEVELOPMENT, THE CLUB AT OLDE CYPRESS, BOOKS-A-MILLION, VICKI TRACY, GULF COAST INTERNATIONAL PROPERTIES, AND TRADEWIND POOLS.
If you have already purchased a series ticket at the full pre-virtual price, you can contact Marlene to receive a refund for the appropriate portion of your ticket or, if you would like, you can donate that portion of the ticket price to the Friends of the Library of Collier County (which will be much appreciated).
The author presentations will begin at 9:15 am on the dates referenced below. Information will be distributed shortly to explain the logistics of attending the virtual event. A link will also be provided to purchase books and to contact the authors to obtain autographed copies.
Tickets can be purchased by contacting Marlene Haywood at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the Friends office at 239-262-8135 and leaving a message (because our administrative staff is working remotely).
