What She Ate – Luncheon with author Laura Shapiro

Join us for an intimate patio luncheon with award-winning author and culinary historian Laura Shapiro! We'll enjoy salad, an entree and dessert, with a white wine (or other beverage), and coffee service to follow. Laura will discuss and answer questions about her new sensational book, What She Ate – about six remarkable women and the food that tells their stories.

From reviewer Maureen Corrigan of NPR's Fresh Air:

"Shapiro helped break new ground by taking the history of women, housework and cooking seriously, even as her witty and vivid writing style was decidedly un-solemn. Now... Shapiro has done it again, this time, breaking new ground in the art of biography by taking the adage, "you are what you eat," literally.
Shapiro's fascinating new book is called What She Ate,and it focuses on the lives of six women from different centuries and continents — all prominent to different degrees...
Several times throughout What She Ate, Shapiro repeats what surely is one of her life's mantras: 'Food talks — but somebody has to hear it.' How lucky for us readers that Shapiro has been listening so perceptively for decades to the language of food."

Seating is very limited for this luncheon to keep it an intimate affair, so reserve your spots now!
Only $45 per person includes tax and tip
