All author presentations will be made on a virtual basis because of the Covid-19 surge. HOWEVER, ALL PRESENTATIONS WILL BE RECORDED AND STORED. THOSE PURCHASING A TICKET WILL BE ABLE TO VIEW EVERY PRESENTATION AT ANY TIME AFTER THE LIVE EVENT UNTIL THE RECORDING IS REMOVED AT THE END OF APRIL. Tickets for the entire series will be $100 for Members and $140 for Non-Members. Unfortunately, logistical issues preclude us from selling separate tickets to individual presentations.
EVERYONE PURCHASING A TICKET WILL BE ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE A $100 GIFT CARD FROM CAPITAL GRILLE, ONE OF OUR SPONSORS, OR A $50 GIFT CARD FROM FLEMINGS STEAKHOUSE, ANOTHER SPONSOR. AT THE END OF EACH PRESENTATION WE WILL ANNOUNCE THE PERSON SELECTED FROM OUR DRAWINGS TO RECEIVE THE CAPITAL GRILLE GIFT CARD AND THE PERSON SELECTED TO RECEIVE THE FLEMINGS STEAKHOUSE GIFT CARD.
OUR OTHER SPONSORS ARE NAPLES MACFRIENDS USER GROUP, JOHN R. WOOD PROPERTIES, STOCK DEVELOPMENT, THE CLUB AT OLDE CYPRESS, BOOKS-A-MILLION, CAPITAL GRILLE, VICKI TRACY, GULF COAST INTERNATIONAL PROPERTIES, TRADEWIND POOLS AND WYNN’S MARKET.
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).
Lectures will last approximately 30-45 minutes with Q&A following the lecture.
