The Friends of the Nacogdoches Public Library invite the community to attend a unique fundraising event on Friday, June 3rd at 6:00 p.m. The 2nd Annual Literary Ball will be a celebration of all things book-related, and the theme is “Once Upon a Time.”. Guests are encouraged to dress up, but costumes are not required to attend. The event will include a “locavore” menu with dishes made with local produce and ingredients from the Nacogdoches Farmers Market. In addition, the evening will mark the opening of “The Webster Show: Art by Definition.” The exhibition is the brainchild of local artist Wally Knight, who has chosen 26 pages from a dictionary, one page for each letter of the alphabet. In turn, 26 local artists have each taken a page and used it as inspiration to create art in a variety of media. Some pieces, along with other items, will be part of a silent auction. All proceeds go to support library programs. Tickets are $40 and can be purchased on the library’s website at nactx.us/library, or on Facebook and Eventbrite.
