Tea & the English
Join us for a free lecture from popular speaker Professor George Robb along with a tea tasting. A nice “cuppa” is a long tradition in the UK, and teatime is a cultural touchstone which the inhabitants of the British Isles hold sacred. Join us for an evening of social and culinary history by one of the Library’s most popular speakers, Professor George Robb. We will sample different types of tea and English biscuits (known in the USA as cookies!). You’ll feel just like you stepped into the set of Downton Abbey.
