Women's *Tipsy* History with The Library Company of Philadelphia
Tipsy History Storytelling at The Library Company of Philadelphia for Women's History Month!
About this Event

We're rolling out the GPLEX360 sessions for 2023, and this March, we're honoring Women's History Month through our very own Tipsy History evening at The Library Company of Philadelphia!

Reserve your spot now...

Philadelphia has a rich history in which women were behind every event, every cause, every movement, and every moment. Scholars at The Library Company have access to texts from our country's earliest days, and they're using their resources to learn new things about the present.

Why *Tipsy* History? The event idea originated when two GPLEX'ers were recanting a historical event at a GPLEX happy hour and I realized that 1. they needed to do this more often and 2. that historians should be involved. Enter: The Library Company of Philadelphia, with its wealth of knowledge and scholars, willingness to play and create, no shortage of generosity...and this event was born! *
