The 2018 One Story Literary Debutante Ball

The Literary Debutante Ball is a benefit that celebrates One Story, honors our Literary Debutantes, and raises a glass to our 2018 Mentor of the Year, Alexander Chee. The ball will feature specialty cocktails and appetizers, live music, and dancing.

The highlight of the ball will be the formal “presentation”

of our Literary Debutantes: One Story authors who have published their debut books in the past year.

2018 Debutantes:

Kendra Fortmeyer, Hole in the Middle (Soho Teen)
Chelsey Johnson, Stray City (Custom House)
Cheston Knapp, Up Up, Down Down (Scribner Books)

Each writer will be escorted by an author/agent/editor/loved one who has been a mentor to them.

Please note that this is a ticketed event. To purchase tickets, visit the link above or go here: https://www.one-story.com/index.php?page=benefit

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.

No one under 21 years old will be admitted.

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 maribeth@one-story.com.
