The Third Annual Bookbinder’s Ball — 6–8pm SLT

Miss Gabrielle Riel, Prim Min­is­ter of New Toulouse, and Miss Gal­latea­Su Beau­mont, Librar­i­an of New Toulouse, cor­dial­ly invite you on behalf of our com­mu­ni­ty and the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium to the Third Annu­al Book­binder’s Ball this evening from 6–8pm in the Tou­s­saint L’Ou­ver­ture Library Ball­room. (

The theme of this year’s Ball is…The Hero­ine in Lit­er­a­ture. We rec­om­mend, but do not require, that guests come as their favorite Hero­ine-cen­tered nov­el, sto­ry, play, or poem. You may come as a char­ac­ter or some­thing else that rep­re­sents the work. We also have an option­al game to see who can guess the most characters/representations cor­rect­ly.

The Prim Min­is­ter will pro­vide the music on Radio Riel New Toulouse. You can tune in by open­ing in a media play­er.

The His­to­ry of the Book­binder’s Ball

In 2007, the first Book­binder’s Ball was held in a ball­room high over Cale­don Primver­ness. It was host­ed by Coy­oteAn­gel Dim­sum, JJ Drinkwa­ter and Gabrielle Riel. The ball was in hon­or of the new Nov­els Col­lec­tion that had just debuted at The Cale­don Library. The theme was “Come as Your Favorite 19th Cen­tu­ry Nov­el”.
