AN EVENING WITH ALEXANDER JULIAN
“Fashion in Literature”
Cost: Tickets are $50 each, Sponsorships start at $250
An Evening with Alexander Julian, “Fashion in Literature,” will be held in downtown Lumberton, North Carolina, at the Carolina Civic Center Historic Theater on Thursday evening, October 16th, from 6 pm to 8 pm. This is an event sponsored by the Friends of the Robeson County Public Library.
Funds raised from this event will be used for new technology in the Robeson County Public Library System. The goal is to buy new children’s computers that are preloaded with educational games and tools for all seven library branches. Additionally the young adult technology and system-wide technology need to be updated.

He is the only designer in the United States who has won top awards in both elements. Julian’s “Colours” line of clothing is credited with changing the way men dress and his yarns are on permanent display in the Smithsonian Institute. Julian has been on the Top Ten Best-Dressed List nine times, he has been awarded the Distinguished Alumni Award at The University of North Carolina and Family Circle Magazine named him Father of the Year.
