CLEVELAND: On Saturday, November 16, 2019, the Cleveland Public Library Foundation will host “Black, White and REaD” 150th Anniversary Affair benefiting the Cleveland Public Library. The fundraiser celebrating the Library's sesquicentennial will kick off at 6:30 p.m. at the Main Library and Louis Stokes Wing.


The Anniversary Affair will showcase the Library's renowned collections as partygoers mingle with nationally recognized authors with ties to Ohio. Authors in attendance include: Paula McLain who wrote New York Times bestseller The Paris Wife, D.M. Pulley, best-selling author of The Dead Key, American poet Philip Metres, Dan Chaon who wrote national bestseller Ill Will, and bestselling author Loung Ung whose memoir, First They Killed My Father, inspired a Netflix Original movie directed by Angelia Jolie. 


Attendees will feast on literary-themed food and cocktails while they stroll through different parts of the Main Library's unique finds and interactive technology. The Library’s Special Collections highlight the Library's greatest treasures such as the world's largest collection about the game of chess and miniature books.


Celebrants will get to turn ideas into reality in TechCentral, view the Library’s illustrious city through photos, documents, and interactive media in our Cleveland Digital Public Library, and peruse historic Brett Hall, where the current exhibit "The World of Puppets: From Stage to Screen" is now on display. 


The Anniversary Affair is a place to meet new friends and dance to the sounds of the Mike Petrone Band and other Cleveland favorites. Complimentary valet parking will be provided. 


The Cleveland Public Library Foundation raises vital funds for the Library's education and community programs. "The Foundation is integral to the operation of the Cleveland Public Library. Help us strengthen our role as a center for learning, a cultural institution, and a neighborhood access point for critical social services by attending this once-in-a-lifetime event," says Felton Thomas, Jr., Executive Director​ and CEO of Cleveland Public Library.
