The Literary Debutante Ball
A Celebration of Emerging Writers

509 Atlantic Ave.
Brooklyn, NY 11217
The Literary Debutante Ball is a benefit that celebrates One Story, honors our Literary Debutantes, and raises a glass to our Mentor of the Year, the award-winning author Colum McCann, for his exceptional support of other writers. The ball will feature specialty cocktails, music, and dancing.
The highlight of the ball will be the formal “presentation” of our Literary Debutantes: seven One Story authors who have published their debut books in the past year:
Each writer will be escorted by an established author and/or editor who has been a mentor to them.
All proceeds from the Ball will benefit One Story, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and aid its mission to celebrate the art form of the short story and support the writers who write them.
Higher level individual, corporate, and in-kind sponsorships are now available and most welcome. For complete details and benefits of donating to One Story, contact Maribeth Batcha at .
No one under 21 years old will be admitted.
** A limited number of $75 tickets will go on sale starting April 10, 2014.
