The Drunken Botanist:
The Plants That Create
the World's Great Drinks

Book & tickets
for the signing now available

We are psyched to welcome one of our favorite people in the world, Amy Stewart, back to BookPeople! We're huge fans of Wicked Plants and Wicked Bugs and her new book, The Drunken Botanist, is right up our alley - it explores, "...the dizzying array of herbs, flowers, trees, fruits, and fungi that humans have, through ingenuity, inspiration, and sheer desperation, contrived to transform into alcohol." Oh, yes.

This is going to be a very special event. Amy and the folks at Liber & Co. (a local independently-owned company that makes phenomenal small-batch cocktail ingredients) have created an original recipe for The BookPeople Botanical, a delightful cocktail featuring Liber & Co's fine wares mixed with Tito's Handmade Vodka. 

What's more: the good folks at Austin's The Great Outdoors Nursery will be giving away a gift basket full of green-thumb goodies.

It's going to be a great night! Join us! 


The speaking portion of this event is free and open to the public. 

Tickets are only required for the signing portion of the event.

Tickets are only available with the purchase of a copy of The Drunken Botanist from BookPeople. 

Books & tickets for the signing line are now available in-store and via our website. When ordering online, we will automatically assign you a ticket for the signing line. There is no separate "ticket" item to add to your cart - just order the book and we will automatically reserve a ticket for you with your book.  
If you cannot make it to the event and would like a signed copy, you can order one from us. Simply write "SIGNED COPY" in the comments field during checkout. We ship all over the country and internationally. Signed books will ship out after the event.  

Many thanks to tonight's sponsors:
