MANCHESTER - Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning will be holding the Literary GMALL Ball at Maple Street School in Manchester on Aug. 8 beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Appropriate for an educational organization, the theme is literary. Tables will be decked out with different books in mind, from the classics to contemporary. While it is not required, guests may come dressed as a favorite author or character for literature, if they so choose.

The event will begin with cocktails and a dinner catered by Hub Poelmann, a live auction with Eric Nathan, and dancing to music provided by the High Definition Band from Saratoga, N.Y.

The auction will feature items such as a week for five in a mews house in London's Belgravia district, a New York trip for four with two nights at the New York Athletic Club, tickets to the Tony Awards 2015 and dinner at the North End Grill and a two night stay for four at the newly restored Hill Farm Inn in Sunderland, among others.
