Welcome to the 27th season of the Gifford Author Series! We are excited to be presenting a dynamic group of literary superstars.

We care about the health and safety of our audience, authors, and staff, and appreciate your patience and cooperation as we move forward with our celebrated author series!

COVID-19 Guidelines
We ask that you enter the building through the set of doors closest to the courthouse on Montgomery Street.

We will no longer be checking Covid-19 vaccination status or proof of negative test. However, for the safety of our fellow patrons, talent, and venue staff, masks are required for all.

If you are attending with another person or group, please communicate the above requirements to all attending.

Please be aware this information is subject to change, so we encourage you to check back prior to the events you will be attending for any updates. If you have questions regarding these guidelines, please contact FOCL at or 315-435-1832.
