Thanks to all our attendees, table captains, sponsors, volunteers, and other supporters for making Monday’s sold-out Lunch for Libraries fundraiser at Monona Terrace a huge success! The event — which set records by grossing $107,000 and drawing about 700 guests — featured best-selling author Emily St. John Mandel for a discussion of her latest novel, Sea of Tranquility.
