One Story Magazine's annual Literary Debutante Ball is a send-up of the debutante balls of old: instead of featuring young society ladies, it honors One Story authors who have published their first books in the past year. For the fifth year in a row, the current crop of Debutantes will visit Greenlight to present their debut books, at this free event the night preceding the Ball! Reading from their newly minted novels and story collections from publishers large and small, the Debutantes celebrate the joy of publication and the vibrant community of One Story writers as they present what is always a diverse and rich collection of literary writing, followed by a festive wine reception sponsored by The Authors Guild and a book signing with all authors.
