Story Fest: GIRLY DRINKS Book Launch and Festival Party!
October 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
What better way to kick off the return of StoryFest than with an abundance of Girly Drinks! Participants are invited to celebrate the (East Coast) launch of Mallory O’Meara’s highly anticipated book about the history of women and alcohol. We’re partnering with SoNo 1420 to serve some of Mallory’s favorite drinks.
From the earliest days of civilization, alcohol has been at the center of social rituals and cultures worldwide. With smart insight and boundless curiosity, Girly Drinks unveils the untold history of the female distillers, drinkers, and brewers who have played a vital role in the creation and consumption of alcohol, from ancient Sumerian beer makers to Russian bootlegging grandmothers. Filling a crucial gap in culinary history, O’Meara dismantles the long-standing patriarchal traditions at the heart of these very drinking cultures, in the hope that readers everywhere can look to each celebrated woman in this book.
