Captivating Voices

The Santa Clara County Library District (SCCLD) is proud to announce the third annual Distinguished Author Series. SCCLD welcomes three writers whose works spark thought-provoking ideas and conversations. Each of these barrier-breaking authors comes from a different and diverse background, with stories that will captivate and inspire.

Each author presentation or moderated talk will be followed by an audience participation opportunity for questions and answers.

The Distinguished Author Series is Free and open to the public.
