Tucson Festival of Books & Me



This is a big weekend for ‘Lost Restaurants of Tucson‘.bookcover0001

I will be a featured speaker at Tucson Festival of Books. 12087284_10152678676854567_4569096598319028595_oI consider it an honor be a part of this wonderful event. I’ll be presenting at the Culinary Tent on the University of Arizona Mall at 11:30, followed by a signing there and then I’ll spend some time at the Mostly Books tent.

Donna Nordin 283370_236555563042524_6893054_nwill be preparing Cafe Terra Cotta’s Goat Cheese Stuffed Shrimp -the recipe is in the book- and there will be a tasting panel with several of the chefs/owners who were featured in the book.

I could write pages about Tucson Festival of Books but better that you look at their website to get a true picture of what it’s all about.

There’s also a reception cocktail party of Friday and a Culinary Dinner at Skyline Country Club on Saturday evening.

I’m excited and can’t wait.

One more boast:

Imagine my excitement when while visiting the UofA Bookstore the other day and seeing my book prominently displayed near the front of the store. Thanks to my sister Nancy for taking this photo. I take pride in having my book at my alma mater’s bookstore.12814345_10207334853308713_3018505857591993399_n

Please try and make it. I’d love to see you there.
