Bibliococktails returns to The Rosenbach for a special evening of literary celebration of our newly renovated garden. Each and every plant in this garden is mentioned by authors from our collection such as Emily Dickinson, Lewis Carroll, and William Shakespeare. We’ll concoct some delicious drinks inspired by both the plants and their literary counterparts.    

Expect fun literary activities, inspired toasts, cocktail demonstrations, and a return to great bookish conversation.    

Proof of Vaccination
