This is the BIG one!

Come celebrate the 10th anniversary of Rochester’s own Open Letter Books with an evening of ambiance, food, specialty cocktails, a raffle featuring local Rochester goods, and Rochester's literary arts.

This year our special guest is one of Open Letter's foundational authors (actually, the first author we EVER published), the one, the only—Dubravka Ugresic!

All tickets are tax deductible, and all proceeds directly benefit the mission of Open Letter Books (a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts organization at the University of Rochester), help afford students the opportunity to learn literary translation here in Rochester, and further promote the literary arts in our community.

Note: After completing checkout, you'll receive a general confirmation email. All tickets will be held at the door. As the event nears, you'll receive a second email from us with your final ticketing info and event details. Any questions? Just drop us a line!

Open Letter Books was founded in 2007 at the University of Rochester with the mission of enhancing American book culture by translating and promoting literature from around the world. To date, the press has published more than seventy critically-acclaimed titles, launched the Best Translated Book Award (the largest prize for translations in the U.S.), and has hosted dozens of locally-based Rochester events in its "Reading the World Conversation Series." The press also works closely with the University of Rochester’s literary translation studies program and offers internships to local students. Featured in the CITY Paper as one of the most vibrant publishers on the scene, Open Letter is a mainstay among Rochester arts organizations.

Come join us for our 10th anniversary celebration and Rochester, and help support one of the community's most internationally beloved arts organizations with a night of literature, music, food, drinks, and more!
