James Beard House reading

If you're reading this blog and you live in New York, you're invited to my January 23rd reading at the James Beard as part of their authors program, Beard on Books.

Wednesday, January 23
Noon to 1 p.m.

The James Beard House
167 W. 12th Street, New York

Space is limited, so RSVPs are recommended. Please call James Beard Foundation reservations manager Colleen Vincent at 212.627.2308. (You do not need to be a Beard House member to attend.)

The James Beard House describes Beard on Books "as an ongoing monthly literature series featuring readings and discussions with some of the food world’s most celebrated authors." It is free to students with a suggested donation of $20 to non-students. Aqua Panna and S. Pelligrino water and illy caffé will be served, and light refreshments will be provided by Adam Siegel of Bartalotta’s Lake Park Bistro in Milwaukee. He's also presiding over a black truffle dinner at the Beard House the night of my reading; we met when I did an event at their restaurant while I was on tour.

(Food costs for the refreshment donated to the Beard House by Le Cordon Bleu.) Guests are also welcome to bring a brown bag lunch. Book signing will follow reading and discussions and books will be available for purchase from Mobile Libris.

Also coming up for future Beard on Books events are three authors I particularly admire:
  • March 12 - James Peterson, whose most recent book Cooking is one of the best general cookbooks I've across in a long time.

I met you at your New York reading at Columbus Circle. I cannot make your James Beard event because I will be out of town on vacation. But I wanted to let everyone know that you're a great speaker and it's well worth going to see you! I thought you a wonderful public speaker, obviously at ease in front of an audience plus funny, warm and very inspirational. I am disappointed to miss a chance to see you.

I'm loving reading your book! I dread coming to the last page - it's that good. I've told many friends about it and I'm sure I will be trying some of the recipes. It's great to see your website and blog so we can continue the journey with you.
