Community-Wide Handmade Gatherings Potluck!

Handmade Gatherings Paperback

Friends! My book on seasonal potlucking, Handmade Gatherings, is being released in paperback on June 14th. WOOHOO! With a new cover and new price ($24.95), this book is destined to get an entire second life. Please help me celebrate!

In collaboration with my wonderfully supportive publisher, Roost Books, I’ll be hosting a community-wide spring foods potluck on June 19th. The event is free and open to the public. Please come on down to the picnic pavilion at Carrier Park in Asheville, enjoy the river, and bring a dish to share that most represents the foods of late spring/early summer to you. We’ll be there form 12:30-3:30, and I believe Malaprops will be on hand selling copies of the book. I know it’s Father’s Day, so bring your Pops with you! All the restaurants will be overcrowded with brunchers anyways.

Glenn and I poured our hearts and souls into this book, as did many of you (so many recognizable faces of friends and family dot the book’s pages!).  Please, come help us celebrate the spirit of community and gathering together around food, fellowship, and festivities. Hope to see you there!
