Guests at this year’s Literary Voices Dinner enjoyed the theme “Reading is your passport to Adventure” with globes, roses, passports and books as centerpieces and David McCullough as speaker. The Pulitzer Prize winner’s  latest book “The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris” added special emphasis to the theme. “I try to make you see, hear, feel and smell,” the author noted.

Carol Troy was Literary Voices event chairman and Elaine Levy was co-chairman.  Robert Clement is Library Endowment Trust president. The Library Endowment Trust officers and trustees were hosts for the event.

Friends of the Metropolitan Library were given the Lee B. Brawner Lifetime Achievement Award.

The event, at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club, featured a filet mignon dinner with salad and creme brulee for dessert.

Committee members included Troy and Levy, Brian T. Alford, Catherine Armitage, Sherry Beasley, Dede Benham, Marilyn Bethea, Annie Bohanon, Karen Browne, Ann Cameron, Robert Clements, Sody Clements, Terri Cooper, Rita Gunter Dearmon, Karen Delaney, Debby Dudman, Michelle Ellis, Ellen Fleming, Joan Frates, Linda Garrett, Julie Hall, Dr. Nancy Hall, Kirk Hammons, Jane Harlow, Tamara Hermen, Lori Hill, Sarah Hogan, Gail Huneryager, Karleen Krywucki, Lana Lopez, Penny McCaleb, Caroline Patton, Mary Price, Tina Ridley, Meg Salyer, Cindi Shelby, Sylvia Slater, Audrey Streetman, Suzie Symcox, Jane Thompson, Lauren Voth and Kathy Walker.
