Novel Night 2018

Adventures Await You

6 pm to 11 pm

On Saturday, November 3rd, begin your literary journey on a Moonlit Adventure at the eighth biennial Novel Night celebration to benefit the Rye Free Reading Room. Celebrate a novel-inspired evening with friends and neighbors – known and new.

Festivities begin at 6pm with novel-themed costume dinner parties hosted in private Rye homes. At 8pm, guests from all parties will congregate at the Shenorock Shore Club for dessert, dancing, and a live silent auction. Given the variety of themes, this collection of character and culture-inspired costumes will make for a lively evening.

Let Your Adventures begin

Each of our gracious dinner hosts has confidentially selected a different novel featuring a Moonlit Adventure. Download and review the dinner party descriptions, and then please list your choices on the reply card in your order of preference.  Return the card in person, by mail, or via e-mail ( with payment to the Rye Free Reading Room by October 1st. Reservations are limited and will be filled in the order in which they are received.

In mid-October, you will be notified of your dinner party with the name and address of your host – and then your own personal Moonlit Adventure will begin!
