Authors On the Move



        Read Beyond Your Fears



Sacramento’s Premier Literary Event – March 10, 2018

This year’s “Authors on the Move: Read Beyond Your Fears marks our 16th year of bringing togethr  40 plus distinguished California authors and their recently published books for an evening of literary delight. Click here for this year’s cohort of California Authors.  We are thrilled  to present this year’s keynote speaker, Sasha Abramsky’s recently published book, Jumping at Shadows; The Triumph of Fear and The End of The American Dream.   Jumping at Shadows  is a searing account of America’s most dangerous epidemic: irrational fear.   Sasha Abramsky is a New York Times best selling author and resides in Sacramento, CA.

Beth Ruyak, of Capital Public Radio’s Insight, will be our Mistress of Ceremonies and Pat Hume of David Sobon Auctions will be our auctioneer. Guests will enjoy a champagne reception, a four-course meal from the Hyatt Regency’s farm-to-fork menu, unlimited wine, conversations with three regional authors at their table, a keynote presentation by Sasha Abramsky, and a live auction which features opportunities to win one-time author experiences. The Avid Reader Bookstore will offer all titles for purchase the night of the event.

We are also pleased to announce an enhanced audio solution to the challenge of the noise when all tables are engaged in dialogue with their authors.   This event just keeps getting better while creating more and more support for our Library’s Summer Reading Program and the Foundation’s operations!  Purchase your tickets and/or tables today!  To inquire about sponsorships or other event matters, call April Javist (formerly Butcher) at 916-836-3556 or email at
