Biblio Bacchanal: Wine & Book Pairings with the Brooklyn Caribbean Literary Festival

Saturday, 5:00 pm EDT - 7:00 pm EDT June 22, 2024

The Center for Fiction

Allow us to be your literary sommelier, pairing wines and reads! In four rounds of tastings, you’ll learn about the wine you’re sampling and then hear an excerpt from a novel that complements the notes, read by actor Jermaine Rowe. June is Caribbean Heritage month and LGBTQ+ Pride month, so we are celebrating by pairing wines with LGBTQ+ Caribbean books!

Linger in the Café & Bar afterward to enjoy special prices on full pours of the featured wines and discounts on the featured books. Feeling adventurous? Choose the ‘with books’ ticket option to receive the full collection of books (to be revealed at the event) when you arrive!

Presented in partnership with the Brooklyn Caribbean Literary Festival.
