Chicago area friends: I’m so excited to be heading to the Windy City next week! Here’s my schedule – whether your taste runs to history or hooch, please mark your calendar. I hope to see you while I’m in town.
Monday, April 22: Lecture on The Secret Financial Life of Food, with the Culinary Historians of Chicago.
I’ll be giving a talk about my book, The Secret Financial Life of Food, at an event presented by The Culinary Historians of Chicago.
Since so much of agricultural commodities history took place in Chicago, I’m especially thrilled to have an opportunity to talk about grain, cattle and other food-related futures here. And I fully expect to learn a thing or two from this particular group!
Location: Kendall College (900 N. North Branch St., Chicago, IL) at 6:30 pm.
Tuesday, April 23: Drink.Think heads to Chicago!
I’ll be hosting Drink.Think, a literary reading event about all things drink. Come out and hear your favorite Chicago-area beverage and food writers read from their work. We have a great line-up of writers, authors and industry pros coming out for the event. Admission is free, plus we’ll have some complimentary whiskey tipples on hand. (Win-win!)
Location: Tavernita, 151 W. Erie St, Chicago, IL. Come out at 6pm to drink; the reading starts at 7pm.
See you in Chicago!
