You’re invited to the ultimate family date night! With skyline views of the beautiful city of Lexington, dance floors and silent disco headphones, you'll start the weekend off right. Bring the whole family to this all-ages Silent Disco Party benefiting Girls on the Run Central Kentucky and say goodbye to the days of screaming to be heard over the music.

Not only will there be three channels of family-friendly music, but we'll offer dinner to please the young and old, a craft station and Silent Auction. With three live DJs playing your favorite hits, this party has something for everyone.

The Silent Disco atmosphere is very conducive to holding a conversation with your friends and family! There is no booming music to scream over.

Spend your happy hour with New York Times bestselling author Beck Dorey-Stein, author of From the Corner of the Oval, the critically-acclaimed memoir of her unlikely tenure as a stenographer in the Obama White House. Moderated by KET's Renee Shaw. Books will be available for purchase from Joseph-Beth Booksellers. Book signing to follow presentation. Please note that alcohol will only be served to those 21 years of age and older with a valid ID.

Tickets are required and $35 plus tax, includes beer and wine.

About the From the Corner of the Oval:
In 2012, Dorey-Stein is working five part-time jobs and just scraping by when a posting on Craigslist lands her, improbably, in the Oval Office as one of Barack Obama’s stenographers. The ultimate D.C. outsider, she joins the elite team who accompany the president wherever he goes, recorder and mic in hand. On whirlwind trips across time zones, Beck forges friendships with a dynamic group of fellow travelers—young men and women who, like her, leave their real lives behind to hop aboard Air Force One in service of the president. As she learns to navigate White House protocols and more than once runs afoul of the hierarchy, Beck becomes romantically entangled with a consummate D.C. insider, and suddenly the political becomes all too personal. Against the backdrop of glamour, drama, and intrigue, this is the story of a young woman making unlikely friendships, getting her heart broken, learning what truly matters, and, in the process, discovering her voice.

About Beck Dorey-Stein:
Beck Dorey-Stein is a native of Narberth, Pennsylvania, and a graduate of Wesleyan University. Prior to her five years in the White House, she taught high school English in Hightstown, New Jersey; Washington, D.C.; and Seoul, South Korea. This is her first book.

Praise for From the Corner of the Oval:
" breezy page turner is essentially Bridget Jones goes to the White House.” — The New York Times

"Who knew the West Wing could be so sexy? Beck Dorey-Stein’s unparalleled access is obvious on every page, along with her knife-sharp humor. I tore through the entire book on a four-hour flight and loved reading all about the brilliant yet hard-partying people who once surrounded the leader of the free world. Lots of books claim to give real insider glimpses, but this one actually delivers.” —Lauren Weisberger, author of The Devil Wears Prada

"Dorey-Stein . . . writes with wit and self-deprecating humor.” —
The Wall Street Journal

"Addictively readable… Dorey-Stein’s spunk and her sparkling, crackling prose had me cheering for her through each adventure… She never loses her starry-eyed optimism, her pinch-me wonderment, her Working Girl pluck.” —Paul Begala, The New York Times Book Review (Editors’ Choice)

Thanks to Transylvania University and Mane on Main for their generous sponsorship of this event!
