The SBPL Foundation presents its 2019 Author Dinner Gala on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 6:30 p.m. after hours at the Library. This year's event will have a Caribbean vibe to welcome Trinidad native Tracey Baptiste (pronounced buhTEEST).

In September, the New York Times best-selling author will present The Jumbie God's Revenge, the third in her popular (though "creepy") middle grade book series about Jumbies. What is a Jumbie?

Tracey is also the author of the New York Times best-selling middle grade book Minecraft: The Crash (2018) and numerous non-fiction books.

The New Jersey resident spends most of her days writing, editing, and working with students in the Lesley University MFA program.

To learn more about Tracey Baptiste, visit https://traceybaptiste.wordpress.com/

The after-hours gala will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14 with appetizers, followed by a buffet dinner and dessert. Ticket purchase will include her newest book The Jumbie God's Revenge, a book-signing, all food and beverages, and an author talk by Tracey.
Tickets are $65 each and can be purchased at the Library Borrower Services Desk or online.
