Village Books Literature Live Events

Ruth Ozeki
Each year we host more than 300 events and have hosted regional, national, and international superstars in the literary world. Authors we have hosted include Sherman Alexie, Garrison Keillor, Ralph Nader, Meg Tilly, Jonathan Safran Foer, David Suzuki, Terry Tempest Williams, Rick Steves, Ivan Doig and hundreds more. Many of our events have been fundraisers for local organizations such as the Whatcom Literacy Council, Northwest Indian College, Bellingham Boys & Girls Club and others. We've very proud of our Literature Live events program and even prouder of how we've been able to support our community with it. More importantly, without our community, we wouldn't have our events. We're so thankful for your support.
