2012 National Book Awards After-Party, Sponsored by Kobo Inc.
The fifth annual National Book Awards After-Party took place on the Cipriani Mezzanine following the Awards Ceremony on Wednesday, November 14. Winners, Finalists, and other Awards guests moved upstairs to continue the celebration, and more than 300 additional invitees, many of them young publishing professionals, waited in line to join the festivities. Molly Ringwald and her husband, Panio Gianopoulos, made an appearance at the party, as did actor Alex Karpovsky. Back by popular demand, DJ Rabbi Darkside kept the dance floor packed until 1:00am.
Special thanks to our after-party committee, Rachel Fershleiser, Jynne Dilling Martin, and Paul W. Morris, whose assistance in the planning of this party was indispensible. Thanks also to our photographer, Aslan Chalom, whose wonderful photographs can be seen below.
