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.

On March 14, the crowd at Cipriani Wall Street was treated to a reading of The Goldfinch by award-winning actress Sarah Paulson. Cynthia McFadden and Holland Taylor helped us pay tribute to the legacies of Liz Smith, Parker Ladd, and Arnold Scaasi for their philanthropic work with Literacy Partners. We also honored industry giants Randy Falco and Joni Evans for their commitment to literacy. Check out our 2018 Gala photos, footage, and media coverage.
