Nashville is cool for lots of reasons, one of which is the Southern Festival of Books, started in 1988 by Humanities Tennessee and held every fall on the state capital grounds downtown. These days it attracts 250,000 book lovers and an impressive line-up of authors. I’m so proud to have been part of the 2015 festival, and for my book to now be carried by Nashville’s Parnassus Books, the incredible independent bookstore co-founded by writer Ann Patchett in 2011.
It’s been so much fun to connect with old friends and meet new folks at the various book signings and events featuring Hungry for Louisiana. THANKS to everyone who has come out and chatted with me about foodways (I’ve learned a lot!), and check out my Events page for upcoming events.
