MATTAPOISETT — Delia Cabe, author of “Storied Bars of New York: Where the Literary Luminaries Go to Drink,” will speak at the Mattapoisett Free Public Library on Wednesday, Aug. 21 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Her book celebrates the best literary pubs, cocktail bars, and taverns of New York City. Every chapter profiles an influential bar and includes a recipe for the establishment’s signature cocktail.

Library staff and volunteers will be serving mocktails in the tradition of New York establishments. Don’t miss out on “a sidecar named desire, ” “the turn of the screwdriver,” or “tequila mockingbird,” and other storied non-alcoholic drinks. Recipes will be distributed. Books will be available for purchase and signing by the author.

Cabe grew up in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. A magazine writer and bookworm, her work has appeared in Self, Prevention, Health, Boston Globe Magazine, Boston Magazine, Scientific American Presents, and other newspapers and magazines. She teaches magazine and column writing at Emerson College. An avid gardener, she lives in a Boston suburb with her husband, Rob, and their two cats.
