NPR's "Contessa of Country Cooking": Her upcoming literary and gustatory happenings

This just in from Mollie Bryan, author of Mrs. Rowe's Restaurant Cookbook: A Lifetime of Recipes from the Shenandoah Valley:


I hope to see some friendly faces in the crowd at my next two appearances. (Yes, folks are still interested in the Mrs. Rowe book!)

On Sunday October 7, 11:00 a.m., I will be speaking at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Waynesboro, which is on Pine Ave. I will be giving a Power Point presentation about the restaurant and Mrs. Rowe —with my husband's help. I'll also update you about future projects. If that's not enough to entice you, there will be cookies. The restaurant is sending over trays of fresh cookies. The choir will be singing some of Mrs. Rowe's favorite hymns. So it will be a real celebration of her life and accomplishments.

On Friday, December 7, 5:30-8:30, I will be participating in a Dinner with the Author series at Stone Soup Books, which is on Main Street in Waynesboro. It's a really good fit for the Mrs. Rowe book. If you haven't been there, and you're local, you need to check it out. They have wonderful food and a great selection of books. Books and food....Can't get any better than that! I am not sure of the details, but I will let you know soon. And please check my website from time to time for updates.

In the mean time, I've been writing for NPR's Kitchen Window, Taste of the South Magazine, Relish magazine, and back to writing for GRIT. Soon, my Mary Johnston article will be published in Virginia Living—and I am VERY excited about that.

I am not sure if I will be doing any more local public appearances about this book. So, I'd love to see any of you at either one of these events.

Keep reading, writing, and cooking!
