Dear Friends-

Thank you so very much for staying with us virtually through the pandemic, and for joining us at our live events as we move forward. Now that we’re back in person, we have adhered to strict safety protocols to ensure that we stay well. 

Prices have gone up everywhere, and Writers Bloc has been hit hard. Our ticket prices barely cover the costs of our programs. 

If you enjoy Writers Bloc, learn from it, are entertained by it, and find meaning from our events, please help. I am continually floored by the authors who participate, and the quality of programs we produce.  But without a doubt, the reason Writers Bloc remains such a cultural force, so dynamic, and so engaging, is you, the audience. And I am not understating the truth when I say that we actually can’t do it without you. Help us to remain a strong community as we continue to celebrate literature by authors we love, and explore critical contemporary issues.

We need your help, and we ask for your contribution.

We have come roaring back with excellent and inspiring programs, including: Katy Tur with Jacob Soboroff; Andy Borowitz with Adam Schiff; Patrick Radden Keefe with Tommy Vietor; Maggie Haberman with Todd Purdum;  Jim Burrows with Jason Bateman; Anthony Doerr with David Ulin; and so many more, including virtual programs, such as U.S. Justice Sonia Sotomayor and America Ferrera; Senator Patrick Leahy; Experts on post-Roe America; Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch and many others.

Our 2024 programs will be every bit as terrific as our 2023 programs. We hope to see you there. 

Please support Writers Bloc, a 501(c)3 organization. Give once, or consider a recurring contribution. We are so grateful to you. 

Here’s to a healthy 2024 for all of us. 

Thank you again.
