Organized like a cookbook, Books That Cook: The Making of a Literary Meal is a collection of American literature written on the theme of food. Each section offers an assortment of poetry, prose, and essays, and all selections include at least one recipe to entice readers to “cook this book”. The work is composed of writing from such notables as Maya Angelou, James Beard, Alice B. Toklas, Sherman Alexie, Nora Ephron, M.F.K. Fisher, and Alice Waters, among others.
The event will also include appearances by contributors Caroline Grant, Ravi Shankar, April Lindner, and Howard Dinin, as well as Marion Nestle, professor at NYU’s Steinhardt who penned the book’s introduction, and editors Jennifer Cognard-Black and Melissa Goldthwaite.
Free and open to the public. To RSVP or for more information call 212.992.9991 or email email@example.com.
