Thanks to the people and organizations who made last Sunday’s Bookmark Napa Valley, a benefit for St. Helena Public Library, the best yet. For the third year in a row, Napa Valley Vintners demonstrated community commitment with our top sponsorship. (Please visit www.supportSHlibrary.org for a complete list of sponsors.)
We welcomed back Lisa Napoli, whose thoughtful conversations with our visiting writers, Ivy Pochoda, Lisa Dickey, and Wiley Cash, were entertaining and topical. Thanks also to Meadowood Napa Valley for hosting the authors and Opus One for a delightful reception before the event. We’re grateful to Oak Avenue Catering and Markham Vineyards and their teams for making the event run smoothly, and to the many Napa Valley wineries who provided cheer.
We’re indebted to our volunteers — directors, library staff, and friends. Finally, we thank the 170 book lovers who attended and helped us raise $40,000 for our library.
