About Day of Authors

Thank you to those of you who attended our 25th Annual event on March 25th!  It was a huge success and we look forward to hosting you at our 26th Day of Authors on February 17, 2018.  As always, our main speakers and breakout authors will be available to sign books throughout the day.

Each year—usually in the early spring—ALPHA has hosted A Day of Authors, where prominent authors inform and entertain more than 550 book lovers.  Presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, biographer A. Scott Berg, Elizabeth George, Jane Smiley, Lisa See, John Lescroart, J.A. Jance, T. Jefferson Parker and many others have spoken at this event.

Along with speakers, the day includes a continental breakfast, a delicious served lunch, terrific raffle baskets, and access to hundreds of fantastic books and book signings with all of our authors!

Proceeds from this popular fundraising event benefit the following community groups:  St. Jude Medical Center’s “Healthy Beginnings” Tiny Togs Program; Operation School Bell (a national program)—ALPHA contributes backpacks and reading books for this program; Santa’s closet; Special Families -Emergency Needs; and the McKinney-VentoToiletry Project.

Please visit the DOA website in October, 2017, for information about the authors and other specifics of our February 17, 2018 event!
