Program Type:Book Discussion / Literary Reading
Join us at the Athens Public Library for a one-of-a-kind evening with local author Katie Quinn as she speaks about her newest book Cheese, Wine, and Bread: Discovering the Magic of Fermentation in England, Italy, and France. The book is an account of Katie's time spent apprenticing in Europe, studying the art and science of fermentation. It is equal parts travelogue and cookbook, and is a captivating adventure into the world of all things fermentable. Katie will join Tom Hodson (WOUB Public Media) in a conversation about her life, her career, and the journeys that culminated in her latest work. A reception and book signing will follow, with light refreshments. Little Professor will be selling copies of Cheese, Wine, and Bread onsite.
In accordance with ACPL's COVID-19 guidelines, face and nose masking is required to attend.
