Second Birthday Bash!

Austin Book Arts Center celebrated its second year of existence on October 2, 2017, with the theme “It Takes Two to Two Step.” The event raised almost $3300! The White Horse Saloon in East Austin played host for the event, and the bar was transformed complete with decorations, cupcakes, a silent auction, and a slide show with ABAC photos from the last year. Children’s books were collected to donate to those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Guests could letterpress print their own drink coasters and construct keepsake dance cards. One of the highlights of the evening was live music performed by Carson McHone. Master of Ceremonies Greg Ciotti led everyone in celebrating the milestone.

ABAC extends our heartfelt gratitude to our event sponsors: The White Horse, Recspec, Koch Printing, and Clampitt Paper Austin.

ABAC also wishes to thank the generous donors to our Silent Auction: Beatrice Baldwin, Mary Baughman, Sarah Bird, BookWoman, Clare Bresnan, Betty Sue Flowers, Half Price Books, Harry Ransom Center, Deborah Hartigan, Christopher Hynes, Jerry’s Artarama, Little Free Library, Malvern Books, Chet Phillips, Olivia Primanis, South Congress Books, Texas Performing Arts, Beck Whitehead
