You have been cordially invited to tea at 6 p.m. on Jan. 25.

In celebration of Virginia Woolf’s 128th Birthday, the Shakespeare’s Sister Company is hosting a High Tea Literary Book Swap in proper British style.

The event will be held at Lady Mendle’s, 56 Irving Place, between 17th and 18th streets in New York City.

Patrons will enjoy the following:

6 – 6:30 p.m. -Tea and Mingling
Enjoy an assortment of teas, a buffet of tea sandwiches and scones with clotted cream and jam.

6:30 – 7:10 p.m. – Literary Book Discussions
Each guest will introduce the title/author of the book, one sentence describing what the book is about, an interesting fact about their favorite part of the book and what kind of book they are looking to swap for.

For those who prefer not to speak, we will provide ink and paper for you to write down your details and an SSC member would be happy to read it aloud on your behalf. We’re all friends here.

7:10 – 7:30 p.m. – Literary Book Swap
Guests will have the opportunity to trade their book as many times as they’d like. Additionally, the SSC will provide a program listing all of the books being traded for patrons to reference.

The event concludes at 8 p.m. However, patrons are welcome to migrate downstairs to the martini bar and heated outdoor garden for cocktails.
