Literary Luncheon Benefit

Since 2008, the Literary Luncheon has brought our community together to celebrate a renowned author and strengthen the Library’s mission; to inspire lifelong learning through innovation and discovery and to be the information and cultural center of the community. Proceeds ensure New Canaan Library will continue to provide the very best programming and collections to our community and beyond. The Literary Luncheon is a highlight of New Canaan’s social calendar and a beloved annual tradition.
