Please consider donating to our silent auction 2020!
Silent auctions are great “fun” raisers and fundraisers. We are looking for donations of items and services to auction off in the library between November 17th – 28th 2020
All proceeds go to help the library! This call is to ask you to consider donating items or services valued at a start price of 30 euros. We accept anything of value and interesting…let your imagination run wild! Some suggestions are paintings, experiences such as private dinners, cruises, hot air balloon rides, cooking lessons, gift baskets, gift certificates (restaurants, yoga lessons, massages; weekend in a vacation home or gîte,) etc.
In 2020, many of the Lit Crawls in our worldwide network were cancelled due to Covid-19, so it was decided to gather everyone for one big virtual literary hoedown. On October 24th from 10:30am-3pm (California time) we’ll hear from the global literati in Boston, Los Angeles, Seattle, Wellington (New Zealand), Kells (Ireland), Cheltenham (England), Angers (France).
For the Angers event, feel free (since it is free!) to listen to a reading and interpretation of the life of Eleanor of Aquitaine based on excerpts from an essay by Norman Cantor. This event will take place of Saturday, October 24th from 7:30-8 pm*. Readers are Phoebe Marshall-Raimbeau, Francoise Arnaud, Marie France Roland and Kenneth Thomas. Directed and produced by Nicole Graine. The library would like to thank the Château d’Angers for the use of their beautiful 12th-century space, so appropriate to the times of Eleanor of Aquitaine.
