Event Details

Join us for the Lamorinda Arts Council’s free “Arts Embraces Words” event in the Arts & Sciences Room at the Lafayette Library and Learning Center.

Attending patrons are seated in the middle of the room surrounded by artwork. In this way the art literally “embraces the words” spoken by emerging writers who read excerpts from their work. Artwork will be videoed and uploaded to our social media sites.

Our Master of Ceremonies introduces each writer at approximately 10 minute intervals. A reception follows at 5 p.m. on the outdoor patio where light refreshments will be served so that writers, artists and all who attend can enjoy each other’s company. A media table is provided for authors’ books and other information of interest to the local arts community. Writers are encouraged to sell their books.

If you are interested in reading your work and/or displaying your artwork go to here to sign up: Questions?  Contact us here.

Many thanks to those who make this program possible: our generous sponsor, Lafayette Community Foundation and our in-kind supporters: Bill Carmel, Orchard Nursery of  Lafayette, Diablo Foods, Lamorinda Wine Growers Association and Trader Joe’s Lafayette.
