Dirt Candy goes to the library

.

One of the coolest emails I got last year was an invitation to speak at the New York Public Library. I’m a book nerd, and so growing up the library was always held in reverence as The Temple of All Culture. It was The Good Place. The Tower of Knowledge (and new books to read). So getting invited to speak at a library gives me a deep, warm glow that nothing else can equal…except maybe really top quality cocaine.

NYPL

Libraries! The cocaine of reading!

.

So, this is happening! On Monday, January 14th, starting at 6:30pm, Dirt Candy is going to be at the Mid-Manhattan Branch of the New York Public Library talking about food, vegetables, and comic books. And this time out you can see all three cookbook amigos: I’ll be talking about vegetables and restaurants, my husband will be talking about the history of vegetarian restaurants in New York, and Ryan Dunlavey will be talking about food comic books and graphic novels. It’s three doses of useless knowledge for the price of one. And that one is priced at Free!

.

Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, and there will probably be some scary people in the bathrooms doing things we don’t even want to know about, but it’s at the library and how cool is that?!?
