Local author, Amira Makansi will share her definitive guide to pairing two of the world's most beloved pastimes: reading and drinking. Presented as a list and organized by genre, Literary Libations offers pairing recommendations for nearly two hundred works of fiction across many genres, with background information on both the book and the beverage as well as an explanation of why the pairing works.
Makansi suggests a bubbly, boozy French '75 with The Great Gatsby, Trappist beer with Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose, and old vine California Zinfandel with The Grapes of Wrath. Don’t you dare open Bram Stoker’s Dracula on a Sunday morning without a Bloody Mary near at hand! Learn more fun pairings during her talk.
