Austin Book Arts Center, which lets you, the reader and lover of books, engage in the art of bookmaking, has announced its third annual fall fundraiser.
The shindig will feature KOOP’s Greg Ciotti as master of ceremonies, Dr. Art Markman and Dr. Bob Duke of KUT’s Two Guys on Your Head fame will discuss your brain on books and a performance by harpist Delaine Fedson Leonard.
Attendees have the opportunity to view a small exhibition of books and artwork created by ABAC instructors and volunteers. Also look for the chance to print and bind a keepsake and a silent auction.
The fundraiser takes place 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sept. 13 at the magnificent central branch of the Austin Public Library Central.
Tickets are $50 to $500 with all proceeds supporting ABAC’s educational programming and outreach in Central Texas.
The event serves to raise awareness of Austin Book Arts Center ’s quest to establish a new space, as the Flatbed Press & Gallery building, where ABAC is located, will be demolished soon after February 2019.
ABAC, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, will launch a fundraising campaign in the future to assist in the search, build out, and promotion of a new studio.
