Celebrate Bloomsday and Pride Month with the Young Friends of the Rosenbach! Join us for a garden cocktail party in your best Parisian accoutrements and learn about James Joyce’s relationship with Sylvia Beach, the lesbian woman who founded the famous Shakespeare and Company bookshop in Paris and first published Ulysses. With food and drinks inspired by Joyce’s time in 1920s Paris, we’ll be toasting to Sylvia Beach’s legacy before the Rosenbach’s annual Bloomsday celebrations kick off!

The Young Friends of The Rosenbach is a social group of young professionals between the ages of 21 and 45 who share a common appreciation for the art of the written word, history, and the culture of Philadelphia. All proceeds from this event go towards the conservation of our Rebecca Gratz portrait!
