Library Foundation Fundraiser: Author and Illustrator Brian Selznick

Posted May 04, 2015


The East Brunswick Public Library Foundation invites the community to its 1st Annual Roots & Wings Celebration, on Thursday, May 28, 2015, with doors opening at 6:45 p.m., and program at 7:00 p.m., featuring author and illustrator Brian Selznick.

Selznick, an East Brunswick native, is the award-winning author of The Invention of Hugo Cabret, which was adapted into the 2011 Oscar-winning film Hugo.

The East Brunswick Public Library Foundation strives to create an environment in which children, teens, and adults can root themselves in our society, our culture, and our town. By supporting the growth of Library services and activities, the Library Foundation strengthens the roots of the Library. Strong roots allows the library to give wings to our residents’ ideas, dreams, and lifelong learning. The Library’s ability to provide the “roots” of learning, the roots of exploration and the roots of personal enrichment then empowers our residents to fly through their world and take “wing” on their dreams.  The name of this event celebrates this notion.

Tickets cost $100 for adults, and $40 for students in grades 10-12, and can be purchased at the circulation desk in the Library at 2 Jean Walling Civic Center.  The evening includes a presentation by Brian Selznick, silent auction, book signing, and an elegant dessert buffet.  All proceeds will benefit the East Brunswick Public Library Foundation.
