Writers in the Schools will hold its 7th annual gala and silent auction on Thursday, November 12 at The Junior League of Houston. Chaired by Juni and Chanler Langham, WITS will honor F. Xavier Pena, former WITS Board President and community leader. Xavier was instrumental to the growth of WITS, nurturing a literary culture and expanding quality education for underserved children. We will celebrate the stories of WITS students, including a performance by the top-ranked Meta-Four Houston team. And, we will introduce the first-ever Youth Poet Laureate for our city. The silent auction will include literary experiences, works of art, writing retreats, a photo booth, and fun games. Tickets start at $300 and tables start at $3,000. All event proceeds support the WITS program and mission. For more information or to inquire about sponsorship opportunities, please contact [email protected].
