In a few days, we'll be raising a glass to bid farewell to 2017 and toast the arrival of the new year, which will certainly bring all sorts of bibliocentric events with it. One Philadelphia-based soirée to put on your calendar in 2018 is the Rosenbach Library's Bibliococktail hour. The event on Friday, January 12, will honor the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. (Be sure to check out Jonathan Shipley's cover story in the winter issue dedicated to the bicentennial.)
Held on the second Friday of each month, the Bibliococktail series is dedicated to celebrating great literature while quaffing light libations created especially for the occasion by local distiller and distributor Quaker City Mercantile.
This 21+ event is free for Delancey Society members, and tickets (available here) start at $15 for Rosenbach members, $30 for general admission.
