Read her post about Joseph Dombey, including a cocktail recipe for Dombey's Last Word, on the Village Books Blog.

Join Village Books for a special event with cocktail-friendly plants from Mt. Vernon's Christianson's Nursery with featured author Amy Stewart, who will talk about her new book The Drunken Botanist. There will be plant samples from the "Drunken Botanist Plant Collection" at the event, and participants will have the chance to win door prizes!

Who knew that horticulture was such an intoxicating subject? In this follow-up to the New York Times bestsellers Wicked Bugs and Wicked Plants, Amy Stewart explores the odd, unusual, and surprisingly common plants that have produced the world's greatest spirits. The Drunken Botanist uncovers the enlightening botanical history and the fascinating science and chemistry of more than 150 plants, flowers, trees, fruits, and even a few fungi. Join Amy as she shares some of the book's more than fifty drink recipes and gives tips for gardeners.
