The RSF Library Guild’s Author Talks are held approximately 4 times per calendar year, at the Rancho Santa Fe Library. We feature many best-selling authors who present their most current book in an intimate setting, here at our beautiful library. Most events are held midday, and lunch is included, along with a personally signed copy of the book, for a cost of $45.

These events are for RSF Library Guild Members only, but membership is open to everyone. You need not live in Rancho Santa Fe to become a member – see the Become a Guild Member Now link to join online, or click on our Membership tab for more information.
