The 4th Annual SVAF Sonoma Valley Authors Festival includes a free, special event for the Sonoma community. Join Authors on the Plaza, Saturday, August 28th at 5pm on Sonoma Plaza. Featuring introductions by Dave Barry, Amy Tan in conversation with Jeffrey Brown of PBS, and two-time Poet Laureate, Billy Collins, this family-friendly event promises you'll laugh, be moved and thoroughly entertained as you relax on the lawn under the towering trees of the historic Sonoma Plaza. Grab food and drinks and support the many restaurants that border the square, or bring a picnic and get comfortable on your own blanket or beach chairs. A limited number of seats will be available on a first come, first served basis for those with special needs. Though a free event, we ask that you PLEASE register at https://bit.ly/Authors-on-the-Plaza to help us manage the event, staff, and volunteers. All registered guests are entered into a drawing for ten free books! All current COVID protocols will be followed No single-use plastic bottles are allowed on the Sonoma Plaza Sonoma residents Cathy and Chuck Williamson have graciously underwritten all event costs. The Sonoma Valley Authors Festival is honored to have their support. For more Festival details visit svauthorsfest.org.
