Who says the words “library” and “party” are mutually exclusive? Brooklyn literary darlings JHUMPA LAHIRI and JON SCIESZKA are headlining Brooklyn Public Library’s 10th Annual Gala on Nov. 16. The Pulitzer-prize winning fiction writer and renown children’s book author (respectively), along with the Xerox Corporation, are the 2006 honorees at the black tie event, to be held at the Central Library.
This year’s Gala co-chairs are JANET OFFENSEND, chair of the Brooklyn Public Library Foundation, and TONI YUILLE WILLIAMS, trustee of the BPL. Tony-winning actress CADY HUFFMAN will preside as Master of Ceremonies.
