Hugo House is celebrating 20 years of opening the literary world to everyone who loves books or has a drive to write. Join us in celebrating—and help lay the foundation for 20 more years—at Eat Read Hugo, our annual dinner and live auction that raises up to $150,000 each year for writing classes, youth programs, and scholarships.
Laugh with auctioneer Laura Michalek and emcee Karen Finneyfrock, and be moved by the power of words from our special guest speaker Sherman Alexie. Bid on speciality items that pair literary experiences with whimsy and adventure, and raise your paddle to support Hugo House and the writers we serve.
