Licking the Spoon--A Reading Event in NYC
Mar 21, 2013 | From the kitchen of Rose
Candace Walch, who has written a most unusual and terrific food memoir, will be doing a reading this Sunday, March 24, at 7:00 at Bluestockings (172 Allen Street). It's free to the general public and if I weren't going to be out of town I would not miss it!
Here's the description of the event, the author, and the book:
A Memoir of Food, Family, and Identity
Lambda Literary Finalist Candace Walsh concludes her bicoastal Licking the Spoon book tour at Bluestockings. This lively, literary page-turner is a tale told through the lens of food, from childhood's tattered Betty Crocker cookbook, to closeted Cuban arroz con pollo, Women's Studies potluck hummus, Alphabet City Martha Stewart Thanksgiving, and on through marriage, motherhood, divorce, falling in love with a woman, and legal gay remarriage in New York...plus recipes! Walsh is the editor of the anthology "Dear John, I Love Jane," the managing editor at New Mexico Magazine, and she writes about food at AfterEllen.com. A New York native, Candace lives with her wife and two children in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
If you go, please be sure to say "hi" and "congratulations" for me.
