My friends at the Brookline Booksmith had sent me an email the other day to let me know of some upcoming food-related events that they're hosting and in the spirit of growing this community of food lovers, I wanted to share these events with you. I plan to attend a good majority of them and I'd love to sit amongst my "foodie people" and maybe even meet some readers and fellow food bloggers. So mark your calendars and stop on by!
If you haven't been to the Brookline Booksmith, you are sorely missing out my friends. In the day and age of Barnes and Nobles and the Amazons of the world, the Booksmith kicks it old school, being independently owned. With a warm inviting atmosphere consisting of rustic wood floors, rows upon rows of bookshelves, a gift corner and a used bookshop downstairs where people can sell and buy used books, the Booksmith rocks my very Red Sox. I find myself there often, sifting through the Fiction, the Non-Fiction and my personal favorite, the Cooking section, I've found it virtually impossible to leave the store empty handed. While taking the shots for this post, I scored myself a used copy of Tender to the Bone, Growing Up at the Table, written by favorite cook-lit writer of all times, Ruth Reichl - I can't wait to dive right into it!
Along with the buying and selling of books, they also invite numerous writers to host book readings (usually for free!) and they do a fantastic job of attracting some pretty heavy hitters from the writing world. I know I've attended many and some of my favorites have been Jonathan Safran- Foer (Eating Animals) and John Grogan (Marley and Me). I'm really looking forward to these!
