Literary Luncheon: Ruth Reichl, Save Me the Plums
This ticketed luncheon celebrates the release of Ruth Reichl’s memoir, Save Me the Plums, and includes lunch with Ms. Reichl and an autographed copy of her memoir. We also welcome special guest host, Alicia Barry. Trailblazing food writer and beloved restaurant critic Ruth Reichl took the risk (and the job) of a lifetime when she entered the glamorous, high-stakes world of magazine publishing. Now, for the first time, she chronicles her groundbreaking tenure as editor in chief of Gourmet, during which she spearheaded a revolution in the way we think about food.
Complete with recipes, Save Me the Plums is a personal journey of a woman coming to terms with being in charge and making a mark, following a passion and holding on to her dreams—even when she ends up in a place she never expected to be. Tickets: $90, 919.542.3030.
