Join us for an evening with explorer and award-winning journalist Dan Buettner, in conversation with Jeff Gordinier, about his new book, Blue Zones American Kitchen. In his book, Buettner uncovers the traditional roots of plant-forward cuisine in the United States. Along the way, he illuminates both traditional and revolutionary ideas in vegetarian food with recipes from chefs like Westerly’s very own James Beard Award–winner James Wayman of Nana’s Bakery & Pizza.
Writer and editor Jeff Gordinier, will join Buettner in conversation. Staff writer for food column of The New York Times and published frequently by Esquire, he is the author of two books, X Saves the World and Hungry: Eating, Road-tripping, and Risking It All with the Greatest Chef in the World.
This program is presented in partnership between The United Theatre and the Chorus of Westerly. In essence, Speakeasy Choir is a one night choir open to anyone. Everyone who attends will automatically become a member of a singing ensemble for the night and will learn a song with harmonies. At the end of the night, you will all perform with The United Theatre House Band (made up of instructors from our RI Phil Music School at The United).
Author Talk with Deborah Goodrich Royce in conversation with New York Times bestselling-author, Luanne Rice.
All proceeds of book and ticket sales will go to the Warm Shelter. Cocktails and Hors d’oeuvres will be served.
From the award-winning author of Ruby Falls, and “best of” list-topper, Finding Mrs. Ford, comes an original work of fiction that is both stunning and sexy. In a nod to the true crime that inspired it, Deborah Goodrich Royce’s ‘Reef Road’ tells the story of a young woman’s life that once seemed perfect until her family went missing.
