Vive le Livre

The Huntsville-Madison County Library Foundation invites you to join us for our 36th annual Vive le Livre, the Foundation’s gala to celebrate books, authors, and all things Library!  Benefiting the ten branches of the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library, Vive will be held on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, beginning at 6:00 p.m. at the Jackson Center. 

The evening will feature keynote speaker Jamie Ford, author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, which spent two years on the New York Times bestseller list and won the Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature. His most recent novel, The Many Daughters of Afong Moy, is already a New York Times best-seller and a Today Show "Read with Jenna" pick.

Proceeds will go directly back to YOUR Library. Please join us for a wonderful night celebrating the HMCPL and our wonderful supporters!

Ticket sales have closed for this year's event.
