Beyond Words 2022

Beyond Words 2022, the annual fall fundraiser of the Friends and Foundation of the Princeton Public Library, will be held on October 15 at Brick Farm Tavern in Hopewell, NJ.

Beyond Words 2022 promises to be exciting as we welcome author David Wondrich, one of the world’s foremost authorities and most significant chronicler on the history of the cocktail. Wondrich’s first book, “Imbibe” (2007), was the first cocktail book to win a James Beard Award, and his 2021 release, “The Oxford Companion to Spirits and Cocktails,” has culminated a multiyear global research project on the way we drink. Wondrich, a sometimes wry author who also has a doctorate in Comparative Literature from NYU, will chart the evolution from the mid-century cocktail to its contemporary counterpart.

Tasting flights that highlight these trends, with both alcoholic and alcohol-free options, will be provided to guests as they enjoy an outdoor, three course, sit-down dinner featuring Brick Farm Tavern’s acclaimed pasture-to-table menu. We are excited for you to join us for a night of community and celebration in support of the Princeton Public Library!
