Biblioball 2011: Biblio Noir
Every winter the librarians of New York City let down their hair, dust off their dancing shoes and party with the literati. Archivists, authors, readers and nerds of all kinds gather to enjoy live music, trapeze, a bit of film and some of the city's finest DJs at Brooklyn's most wildly bookish event: the Desk Set's Biblioball.
On Saturday December 3rd, the Desk Set returns to the Bell House for the fourth annual winter celebration. Proceeds from the extravaganza will benefit Literacy for Incarcerated Teens.
Join Mistress of Ceremonies Haley Tanner, author of Vaclav and Lena and enjoy:
