Stage Spotlight: Food & Home

The following is a guest post by Susan Manus, co-director of the Library of Congress National Book Festival.

Food, the universally loved subject, will be on great display at this year’s National Book Festival. (Who doesn’t love to eat, right?) Some of the country’s top food authors will provide a glimpse into their special culinary worlds. In addition, there will be fascinating insights offered by in home design. This year, the festival features both of these subjects in one place. The Food & Home stage will have six different sessions with highly acclaimed authors from both of these fields.

The authors featured in Food & Home include William Allman, Chuck Fischer, Allessandro Frassica, Adam Gopnik, Victor Hazan, Déborah Holtz, Pati Jinich, Roland Mesnier, Betty Monkman and Mark Ramsdell. They will discuss their recent books on subjects such as international cuisine (both Mexican and Italian) as well as books about the White House, with both food and design topics relating to our country’s most recognized house.

Come check it out, get some good food and design ideas, and bring some questions for the authors! See below for links to more information about each of these authors.

Author appearances at the Food & Home stage are made possible in part by support from our sponsors: Alessandro Frassica and Victor Hazan sponsored by the Embassy of Italy, and Déborah Holtz sponsored by the Mexican Cultural Institute.
