Event's DetailsOn October 20th the Friends of East Atlanta Library is inviting all in the neighborhood to an costume party, art reception, jazz recital and annual meeting. The meeting part will be super short and sweet to allow plenty of time for the other activities. The fun will start at 6pm as regular library hours end and go until 8 just in time for dinner or other fun in the East Atlanta Village. There will be wine and great munchies for all who come in costume (or at least a mask).
The artist is neighborhood favorite Walker Davis whose work you may have seen at Kaboodle store on Flat Shoals. Walker’s work has a campy pop art quality with bright colors and cinematic themes. Images of handsome hunks and glamorous femme fatales facing the dangers of dark nights and spooky haunts. All of the artwork is for sale to benefit the library.
After a couple of years absence from the Friends annual fall party Tom Marnell and his combo will return this year with the cool sounds of Sinatra, Bennett, Ellington, Armstrong and other jazz greats...familiar standards played in a classy, elegant style that has enriched the experience in the past. Tom lives in the area but you may have caught his act at some of Atlanta’s upscale hotels and nightspots.
The Friends volunteers always lay out a spread of food, but this free event is bigger and even more delicious than the usual finger food buffet. Plus, there will be wine for the costumed revelers. All members attending will be voting for board nominees who will guide the organization in the coming year, but mostly enjoying each other’s company and meeting neighbors.
The Friends group encourages all library lovers to join, but there is no charge for admission. This drop-in party has become a very popular feature of the fall season, but with the addition of costumes and masks this year, it promises to be even more fun. It’s guaranteed to be all treats and no tricks!
