Virtual Fundraiser featuring Alice Waters and Laurie Woolever in Conversation with Lisa Donovan

Food culture

At Humanities Tennessee, we look forward to the day when we can all gather again for the “Authors In The Round” dinner to celebrate outstanding writers and their works, while we enjoy community and a terrific meal, together.

Until then, we are thrilled to bring you a special virtual event featuring Alice Waters and Laurie Woolever in conversation with Nashville’s own Lisa Donovan. Everyone who contributes a tax-deductible gift of $50 or more will be able to join Alice, Laurie, and Lisa in the ‘Zoom* Room’ for a lively conversation about their books, culinary experiences, travel adventures, and so much more!

• $50: Virtual Event + Alice Waters Signed Book

• $100: All of the above + Woolever Book

• $250: All of the above + Special Prize Pack

• $1000: All of the above + Curated Thank You Gift

Every donor and every gift has our gratitude and appreciation! Your support — 100% of your contribution — goes directly toward Festival expenses such as author honoraria, technology platforms, production, and more to ensure the 2021 online author sessions remain free-of-charge to anyone in Tennessee (or beyond) who wants to participate.


*Zoom link for the event will be sent to all donors of $50 or more Oct. 7/8 (prior to the start time).

We are also grateful to our event partner, Bookfinity and Page & Pairing, divisions of Ingram Content Group, for their support of the Festival and this special event.
