‘Tis the season, and that means New York’s annual Biblioball has arrived!

The event occurs on December 4th and those of you who have attended before know what to expect: not just a winter formal for the “well-read and well-attired,” but an incredible way to support Literacy for Incarcerated Teens.

Starting at Brooklyn’s The Bell House at 8 pm and going into the wee hours of the morning, attendees have plenty to look forward to:

In addition to these food and drink items, Happy Hour ticket holders can mingle with local literary stars, receive complimentary coat check, goody bags with literary swag, and a ticket to an exclusive pre-event raffle drawing.

Here are some of the authors who will be sipping, snacking and supporting LIT at Happy Hour:

Gilbert Ford – author of Flying Lessons & illustrator extraordinaire
Ian Christe – publisher of Bazillion Books and author of Sound of the Beast
Julia Holmes – author of Meeks
Jeffrey Rotter – author of The Unknown Knowns
Marcy Demansky – author of Bad Marie and Twins
Justin Taylor – author of Everything Here is the Best Thing Ever
Dave Tomkins – Author of How to Wreck a Nice Beach
