15th Annual Dinner in the Library 
Friday, September 21 • 6–9:30 p.m.
Geisel Library

This year’s Dinner in the Library will be the inaugural showcase event on the newly renovated 8th Floor. This modern reading room and signature event space showcases how a revitalized Library will continue to inspire knowledge, break tradition and spark discovery by enhancing the student experience and enriching our campus community.

The gala features UC San Diego alumnus, Luis Alberto Urrea ‘77, a 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist. Urrea has been hailed by NPR as a “master storyteller with a rock and roll heart.” For decades, Urrea has written about the border and has knitted together stories in a way that makes them familiar and impactful for all of us.

Individual tickets to Dinner in the Library are $300 and include a gourmet dinner, a cocktail reception and an opportunity to interact with UC San Diego students and learn about their research projects. Urrea will speak during the dinner, which will be followed by a dessert reception. All proceeds support the Geisel Library Revitalization Initiative (GLRI), an initiative to transform and revitalize the interior public spaces of Geisel.
