The Literary Debutante Ball: May 21, 2010
The Literary Debutante Ball: May 21, 2010 A Celebration of Emerging Writers
7pm - 11pm
The Old American Can Factory 232 3rd St. Brooklyn, NY 11215
The Literary Debutante Ball will celebrate One Story’s debut and emerging authors, with artists, performers, and filmmakers producing work inspired by issues of One Story. These original works will be displayed at the ball and will be auctioned off in the month following the benefit.
The highlight of the ball will be the formal “presentation” of writers who have made their debuts in One Story. Each writer will be “escorted” by an established author. The presentation will be announced by John Hodgman (The Areas of My Expertise, The Daily Show).
All proceeds will benefit One Story, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and aid it in its mission to support the art form of the short story and the authors who write them. Tickets for the ball are $50 each. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
Benefit Committee: Michael Cunningham | Elizabeth Gilbert | Ben Greenman Virginia Lawrence | Amanda Stern | Katherine Minton | Colson Whitehead
