About Our Auction
Thank you for supporting The Rosenbach! Funds raised by the Rosenbacchanal support our public programs, Behind the Bookcase tours, fascinating conversations with authors, virtual and in-person courses, our annual Bloomsday festival, and hundreds of hours of free, virtual programming like Austen Mondays: Pride and Prejudice.
The Rosenbacchanal unites lovers of great literature and raises crucial funding to support our collection, programs, and work. Join us to celebrate beauty and growth in every corner of the Rosenbach Museum & Library's historic house and garden. We are thrilled to honor James H. and Janet S. Averill for their years of dedication, passion, and support with an evening of drinks, a sit-down dinner, and inspiration from the Rosenbach collection.
All proceeds help The Rosenbach continue our mission to engage with and celebrate the art of the written word using our collection of rare books, manuscripts, and historical objects.
