Due to COVID-19, the King County Library System Foundation will be hosting its Literary Lions Gala this Saturday, March 6 from 7 to 8 p.m. virtually.
Hosted by King 5 Evening’s Angela Poe Russell, the Literary Lions Gala helps raise funds to advance literacy, learning, and libraries for everyone. This year’s keynote, best-selling author Colson Whitehead — winner of the Pulitzer Prize, National Book Award, and the Carnegie Medal of Fiction — will be introduced by philanthropist and author Melinda Gates.
All donations from the event will benefit the King County Library System Foundation to support library outreach programs and services, library innovation, and more.
It is a free event and will be live-streamed online. Register here.
