This Friday in Brooklyn there’s only one place to be: the One Story Literary Debutante Ball—and Small Beer Press are very proud to be one of the sponsors!
When: Friday, April 29, 2011, 7pm – 11pm
Where: The Invisible Dog Art Center
51 Bergen St. (between Smith St. & Court St.)
Brooklyn, NY 11201
The Invisible Dog is located half-block from the Bergen Street F station. There are special cocktails. There is a freight elevator and on the walls of the shaft an Italian painter has drawn the words to Dante’s Inferno. Upstairs, there’s a VIP party with a champagne table hosted by the Bubble Lounge, hors d’oevres and a swing band, Lapis Luna. There are 60 incredible pieces of art in the art auction by both established and emerging artists. Dani Shaprio is the host, there are cookies baked by the One Story staff, and after the debutante presentations, the dancing begins! If you’re wondering what to wear, Marie-Helene Bertino has written a helpful post here.
All literary events should end with dancing! Sounds like an excellent evening. Maybe even see you there?
