Pouring Over Books
Pouring Over Books, along with the accompanying Wine Divas Wine Tasting, is our premier annual event.
Each year, library supporters enjoy an evening with a local author and a complementary selection of fine wines and premium teas chosen by our Wine Tasting Divas, along with delicious light bites. This fundraiser has been hosted at the homes of gracious hosts and a variety of Hill Country venues. In 2021, we shifted to a Virtual Event, due to the pandemic.
Generous local businesses and individuals donated marvelous items for a Virtual Silent Auction, as well. This event would not be possible without our many community sponsors who demonstrate their support of our community library.
February 28, 2021, we enjoyed hearing from local author, Joe Nick Patoski. He entertained the audience with stories from the Texas music scene. We were also privileged to have musician, author, scholar, and more, Craig Hillis join us.
Previous years have featured authors and musicians such as Ben Rehder, Nathan Brown, and Larry D. Johnson, former Poet Laureates of Oklahoma and Texas, respectively, singer/songwriter Kasey Landsdale, and Susan Wittig Albert – among others.
We are so happy to say the 2022 fundraiser will be held again at the Prospect House on Sunday, February 27.
We’ll be serving wines carefully chosen at the Wine Diva Tasting Party, along with small bites. Hopefully, the Hill Country Ramblers will be able to perform as you browse our Silent Auction items and place your Virtual Bids. The author for the evening is not yet confirmed but we’ll be announcing them soon.
Thank you to our sponsors, speakers, and all the hardworking volunteers that made this year’s event possible.
