The annual Thurber Birthday Gala shines the spotlight on the previous year's winner of the celebrated Thurber Prize for American Humor. 2017's featured speaker was Harrison Scott Key, winner of the 2016 Thurber Prize for his memoir, The World's Largest Man. For a night of good friends, good fun, and award-winning humor, the Thurber Birthday Gala is the place to be!

This year's Gala will be held on December 6, 2018. Stay tuned for more details!
