HVWC Annual Gala

November 4, 2021 (VIRTUAL) and November 5, 2021 (IN-PERSON)

Honoring Afaa Michael Weaver, Melissa Febos, and Garth Greenwell

 

As we write HVWC’s next chapter of literary programming with both in-person and virtual offerings this fall, we are excited to be presenting a new type of gala.

The centerpiece of this year’s celebration will be our gala film, a recorded program that highlights all that makes HVWC special alongside unforgettable readings and commentary from our three, acclaimed honorees. The film will be presented during a live watch party via Zoom on November 4 for those who’d like to celebrate from home, and at multiple in-person cocktail watch parties held in locations around the country on November 5.

Host or join a watch party, either virtually or in-person – we encourage you to celebrate and support HVWC in whatever way works best for you!

Please note: attendees of in-person watch parties must present proof of Covid-19 vaccination. More details on HVWCs Covid-19 policies here
