FRIDAY, APRIL 5
Sea View Theatre / 5–6 p.m.
Poems, essays, restaurant reviews, profiles, novels, and, of course, cookbooks—they all find a wide audience when they’re about food and drink. They entice us to try new cuisines and techniques; give us glimpses into the worlds of restaurants, sustainable agriculture, and locavorism; and help us decide how and where to sate our palates and fill our cupboards. Feast with this panel of experts as they share stories, wisdom, and dreams about how writing whets our appetites.
This event is free and open to the public.
