o+o-sponsors-imageEngage Twin Cities Leaders

In just twelve years, Opus & Olives has become one of the premier literary and social events of the year. More than 1,000 guests from the business, political and social community have the opportunity to meet and listen to national best-selling authors. Opus & Olives offers a prime opportunity to meet and engage with Twin Cities leaders.

Entertain Clients, Customers and Friends

The evening begins with a social hour during which the emcee and authors are available to speak with guests and sign books (which are available for purchase). Following the reception is a sit-down, chef-prepared dinner, after which each author speaks extemporaneously about the writing process, the book most recently published, or other timely topics. The evening ends with an additional opportunity to visit with authors and purchase books.
