The Houston Public Library Foundation’s annual luncheon unites the community to focus on issues that matter to Houston. Since the inaugural Beyond the Page luncheon in 2017, Phillips 66 continues as the presenting sponsor. Beyond the Page focuses on an author’s contribution to the literary community and their work that makes an impact on society. The Library Foundation values their continuing partnership and support of this spring event.

In 2019 the luncheon’s Diversity & Inclusion theme aligned with Phillips 66’s focus on an inclusive and productive workplace.
