Authors on the Plaza
Extending the Festival to Sonoma Valley Residents
Authors on the Plaza is a free, family-friendly special event for the Sonoma community hosted by the Sonoma Valley Authors Festival.
In April 2023, we were delighted to have Stanford professor and award-winning author Abraham Verghese, current U.S. Poet Laureate Ada Limón, and hilarious humorist Dave Barry spoke at Authors on the Plaza.
This family-friendly free event promises you will laugh, be moved, gain insight, and be entertained while you relax on the lawn under the towering trees of the eight-acre historic Sonoma Plaza.
Bring a picnic or purchase food and beverages from the many restaurants that border the square. Don’t forget a blanket or beach chairs. A small number of folding chairs will be available on a first-come-first-served basis for those who sitting on the ground is too difficult.
