Food, glorious food: Got a question for Adam Gopnik?
Friday, Oct. 28, 2011
For those who love to dine (or even live to dine) writer Adam Gopnik has served up a tasty multicourse historical exploration with his latest book, The Table Comes First: Family, France, and the Meaning of Food. And he'll be in Palo Alto on Nov. 1, for a program hosted by The Commonwealth Club–Silicon Valley at the Cubberley Community Center. Details and tix here.
Your humble SCM editor is handling the Q&A. Come and ask what's on your mind (or your stomach) in person. Can't make it? Email us.
Beyond the food front: In a recent issue of The New Yorker, Gopnik has a tribute to that wonderful children's novel of yore, The Phantom Tollbooth. I'm looking forward to talking with him about that gem.
