Fall Gala – October 21

Don’t miss the Foundation’s annual fall Gala on Saturday, October 21, 2017, from 7-10 pm. We’ll be celebrating in the Hub, our newly renovated first floor!  Buy tickets and journal ads here.

Funds raised through the Foundation’s Gala help support Library programs that promote early childhood literacy, career advancement, cultural enrichment, language study, local history research, teen activities, and lifelong learning for all ages.

This year, we’re excited to welcome gala honoree & keynote speaker Sloane Crosley, celebrated author and graduate of White Plains High School.  Sloane’s most recent publication is the bestselling novel The Clasp (“a highly comic, highly affecting novel”–NY Times Book Review, “A sad, hopeful, endlessly entertaining book,”–Time). Her essay collections, I Was Told There’d Be Cake and How Did You Get This Number, were both New York Times bestsellers and the former was shortlisted for The Thurber Prize. Sloane’s new book of essays, Look Alive Out There, will be published this April. Sloane is featured in The 50 Funniest American Writers: An Anthology of Humor from Mark Twain to The Onion and her work has appeared in Elle, Esquire, GQ, New York Magazine, Bon Appétit, The New York Times and more.
