Writers & Books’ annual literary celebration returns to 740 University Ave this April. Join us as we recognize those in our community that keep literature alive and well in the Flower City.

This year’s honorees include David Andreatta, Patricia Uttaro, Sharon Knapp, Rochester Association of Black Journalists, Lu Highsmith, Anderson Allen, Shaq Payne, and Aceyon Owens.

The event begins at 6 p.m. with a cocktail hour including light hors-d'oeuvres followed by the award ceremony. We conclude the evening with a cake cutting and reception.

Tickets: $20 members / $25 general public
