On June 8, 2022, we honored four literary stars who were nurtured at Queens Public Library and who exemplify the promise of our borough — Jelani Cobb, Min Jin Lee, R.J. Palacio, and Gary Shteyngart. We are pleased to share this virtual presentation of the 2022 Gala with our community of customers and supporters.
