One Book One New Orleans says
On Thursday, October 27, One Book One New Orleans will, as the Baby Dolls say, “show up and show out” at our events season finale! Please join us at Le Musee de f.p.c. (2336 Esplanade) from 6:00-9:00pm to celebrate a truly remarkable year of literacy, volunteering, and pretty, pretty Baby Dolls. Guests are encouraged to wear their favorite Mardi Gras costumes, and our special guest judges will award a prize for best costume of the night! Dr. Kim Vaz-Deville, author of our 2016 selection "The Baby Dolls: Breaking the Race and Gender Barriers of the New Orleans Mardi Gras Tradition" will join us to sign books, and guests will be treated to a Mardi Gras inspired menu.

We are excited to partner with our parent organization, the Young Leadership Council (YLC) on this event, which will double as the YLC Annual Meeting. At 6:30pm, guests will hear opening remarks from Stephanie Powell, Executive Director of the YLC. Immediately afterward, Callais Waring, YLC President, will swear in the YLC’s 2017 Board of Directors. All voting members of the YLC are strongly encouraged to attend.

This event is free, family-friendly, and open to the public. Join us for what promises to be a fun, funky, and fabulous night!
