Tea and Tarts with Alice

Thu, November 19, 2015 6:00 P.M.
Parkway Central Library

One of the most famous passages of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is Alice’s Mad Tea Party featuring the March Hare, the Dormouse, and the Mad Hatter. Bring the Rosenbach’s “Down the Rabbit Hole” exhibit to life by learning all about tea preparation and appreciation from Alexis Siemons, tea consultant and writer, while enjoying delicious tarts and teas at the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Culinary Literacy Center.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at freelibrarycook.eventbrite.com.

This program is presented in collaboration with the Rosenbach of the Free Library and the Free Library's Culinary Literacy Center.  

The Rosenbach was founded in 1954 by Dr. A.S.W. Rosenbach (1876-1952) and his brother, Philip (1863-1953). Renowned dealers in books, manuscripts, and fine art, the brothers played a central role in the development of private libraries that later became our nation’s most important public collections of rare books, such as the Folger and Huntington Libraries.
