Luncheon with the Authors


Three nationally acclaimed authors will take part in the 8th Annual Luncheon With The Authors event on Thursday, October 8th at 12:30 p.m benefiting the Allentown Art Museum.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year’s event will have an exciting twist: the book discussion and audience Q & A will take place live over a secure online platform. Guests can enjoy a lively panel discussion with the three authors – moderated by PBS39 News Tonight reporter and multi-media journalist, K.C. Lopez – all from the comfort of their own home.

This year's renowned writers include: Therese Anne Fowler (A Good Neighborhood), Ann Napolitano (Dear Edward), and Dani Shapiro (Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love). Sponsored by the Society of the Arts (SOTA), the proceeds from the virtual event will benefit Allentown Art Museum educational programs, the SOTA Educational Endowment, and the SOTA Print Fund.
