The 2015 Autumn Author’s Luncheon

Soldout

THANK YOU!

Each year, The Friends and Volunteers of the Ocean City Free Public Library and the Board of Trustees of the Ocean City Free Public Library underwrite the Community Outreach (not a fundraiser) Author’s Luncheon. This year, 320 tickets sold in just 21 minutes. Would that all who were in line would have been able to purchase tickets…

While the limit of 10 tickets per person might seem to be the reason for selling out so soon, this was not the case. Only 11 of the 32 tables were sold as tables of 10. Most sales were 2, 3, or 4 tickets purchased by those who arrived early and waited patiently.

Here’s hoping those who were unable to get tickets for this year’s Author’s Luncheon will be able to obtain tickets for next year’s!
