Virtual BABEL Ticket Conversion Options

A Note to Spring 2020 BABEL Ticket Holders

We are offering several options for converting Spring 2020 BABEL tickets into virtual tickets.

We are excited to announce two new virtual BABEL events, coming in March and April of 2021:

  • Admission to each upcoming virtual BABEL event is $25
  • Each ticket holder will have a unique link to the virtual event delivered to the buyer’s email address in advance, which is good for viewing the event on one device

If you previously purchased tickets for the Spring 2020 BABEL events (season subscriptions or individual event tickets), it is NOT necessary for you to purchase tickets for the upcoming virtual events. Instructions for converting your tickets, including options, are outlined below.

We recognize that this new format doesn’t allow for a simple ticket switch, so we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we process your requests over the coming weeks.

  • Get a bottle of red or white wine from Paradise Wines
  • Get a copy of Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead or Ta-Nehisi Coates’s Between The World And Me from Talking Leaves Books
