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:

Trapeze performances from Jean Loscalzo and Joshua & Ben of 2toFly Aerial

"S is for Shhhhh..." An original short film from Joy Tomakso

Sets from DJ Duane Harriott, DJ Shakey, DJ Mikey Post, DJ Jimmy T, DJ Marty McSorley, DJ John XI, and DJ Brian Blackout.

Music from the Jay Vons and the Nouvellas

The third installment of the original Biblioball zine, The Borough is my Library, created and curated by Alycia Sellie

Origami book corsages

Installation from the Uni Project - bring a book to donate, and get one free raffle ticket

The return of the Fancy Pants Raffle

Your portrait taken by Jeremy Balderson in front of illustrator Gilbert Ford's one-of-a-kind backdrop
