Thank you to all of our friends and supporters who joined us for this year’s Rosenbacchanal. Thanks to your generosity we raised crucial funding to support lectures by cultural luminaries, develop dynamic Hands-On Tours, and keep our annual Bloomsday celebration free to the public. Great literature brings us together, and it is thanks to this passion we can continue sharing the history and stories held within our walls as a bold, new Rosenbach.
