Since 2003 the Literary Voices™ event has brought a series of world renowned authors to Oklahoma City for a fundraising dinner benefiting the Library Endowment Trust and the Metropolitan Library System.
The event also annually honors community members who have made outstanding contributions to libraries and literacy with the Lee B. Brawner Lifetime Achievement Award. The award is named in memory of its first recipient, the late Lee B. Brawner, who served as the Executive Director of the Metropolitan Library System from 1971 until 1999.
The author dinner has become one of the region’s premier literary events. Below is a list of the authors and honoraries for Literary Voices™.
