Our 2018 gala will be held at Cipriani Wall Street on March 14, 2018.


Our Evening of Readings and Gala Dinner Dance is our biggest event every year.

For 30 years, the Evening of Readings has brought together corporate leaders from publishing, media, finance and the news business to advance the mission of Literacy Partners. Originally organized by Liz Smith and her dear friends, Arnold Scaasi and Parker Ladd, the event has also featured some of the most important writers of our time reading from their acclaimed works.

In 2017, we featured four individuals for their commitment to literacy: Sheila Nevins, Joanne Lipman, John Josephson, and Fareed Zakaria. The reader of the evening was actress Jill Kargman, who read from her memoir Sprinkle Glitter on my Grave. See photos and media coverage.
