Programs & Events
Book & Author Tea
The Book & Author Tea grew out of our long standing Book & Author Luncheon. Last year, bestselling author Barbara Taylor Bradford was the featured speaker at the Book & Author Tea.
Stamford Literary Competition
Encourage the young writers in your life - your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, students and friends - by urging them to enter our annual Stamford Literary Competition. The goal of the competition is to recognize excellence in student writing.
Books for Babies
This program, which has become a model for other Friends groups nationwide, provides a free first book to every baby born at Stamford Hospital.
Friends Author Series
A successful fundraiser, established in 2011, which brings popular authors to Stamford. The Friends partner with Elm Street Books, an independent book store in New Canaan, to sell books at the events. As part of the experience, the Friends feature local restaurants, which donate appetizers for a wine reception beforehand.
