On Thursday, the storytellers of The Moth StorySLAM will be waxing lyrical on the subject of ‘Home.' 10 stories, 3 teams of judges, 1 winner. $8 at the door. This event always sells out. Limited seating; please arrive early.
And on Saturday, we’ll be hosting Then and Now, a book club reveling in history and pop culture. This week’s book is Sam Kean’s delightfully titled,The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements.
Tonight! An evening of storytelling, lively literary conversation, and bizarre culinary tastes. Join novelist Jonathan Grimwood and special guests Charlotte Druckman, Gideon Lewis-Kraus, and Matt Gross at a celebration of food, obsession, and literature. Dishes prepared especially for the occasion by The Works executive chef Emily Casey and inspired by The Last Banquet will be served (You have been warned.)
About The Last Banquet: Set against the backdrop of the Enlightenment, the French Revolution, and the delectable decadence of Versailles, The Last Banquet is the gripping story of one man’s search for the ultimate taste. A sumptuous and appealing novel about food and flavor, about the Age of Reason, about revolution, hunger, and obsession.
i just reset my “no really you MUST STOP READING NOW” alarm twice to get in a few more chapters of Europa’s first-ever hardcover novel, THE LAST BANQUET (October 2013). it reminds me of Perfume, with its focus on obsessions, its epic span, and its historical details, but warmer, so much warmer. you will want to read this book.
