Thursday Night at the Free Library of Philadelphia

At the main branch of The Free Library.

Dear Philly-based readers! I am going to be doing a presentation (in conversation with my wonderful editor Kristen Green Wiewora) at the Central Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia on Thursday night (that may well be tonight when you read this post). The talk starts at 7:30 pm and should be quite fun.

I’m really excited about this particular event, as all the truly wonderful authors who come through Philadelphia gives talks and readings from the exact same stage. I am delighted and humbled that the library event planners have seen fit to invite me to be part of their author series and I do hope some of you will come!

Book Tour: Eugene, Seattle, San Francisco, and LA

This is my second palmful of raspberries today. Portland May well be paradise.

Raspberries that I picked from my parents’ back yard. Having access to their garden is such a treat.

Friends! I am still on the west coast and have a number of book events still to go. I thought I’d do a quick reminder about the demos and classes I’ve got on the books over the next week or so.

Monday, June 23 (Eugene)
I’ll be at Down to Earth in Eugene (532 Olive Street) from 2-4 pm. There will be a demo. There will be books. There may even be cake, as this event is in conjunction with the store’s 37th anniversary celebration. It’s a free event and fun will be had by all.

Wednesday, June 25 (Seattle)
I’ll be at the Book Larder (4252 Fremont Ave. N) in Seattle from 6:30-8 pm demonstrating a recipe from the book and signing as many copies as I can. The event is free, but they ask that you RSVP using this form.

Thursday, June 26 (Seattle)
I’m teaching a four preserve class at The Pantry at Delancey. I believe that the class is currently sold out, but it never hurts to get on the waiting list.

Saturday, June 28 (San Francisco)
From 12 noon to 1 pm, I’ll be doing a book signing at the CUESA classroom at the Ferry Building (you’ll find me under the white tent at the front of the building). Books will be on hand for sale! More details can be found here.

Sunday, June 29 (San Francisco)
I’ll be at Omnivore Books from 3-4 pm, demoing a tiny batch of honey sweetened strawberry jam, and signing books. There will be samples and they will be delicious. Please come!

Tuesday, July 1 (Los Angeles)
My very last stop on this tour will be at The Gourmandise School of Sweets and Savories in Santa Monica. I’ll be teaching a free demo-style class from 2-5 pm and will have books on hand to sign. Click here for more details and to sign up!

Preserving by the Pint Typos

One of the inevitable things about writing a book is that no matter how hard you work at making it perfect, there will still be a mistake or two in it when the manuscript goes to print. It happened with Food in Jars (you can find the errata page for FiJ here) and it has happened again with Preserving by the Pint.

At my book events I’ve been hand-correcting every book I sign, but I realize that not all of you are going to make it out to a class or demo. So in order to make the corrections accessible to everyone, I’ve created an errata page so that all the errors and fixes are in a central place.

If you’ve spotted an error or typo in the book that you don’t see listed here, please drop me a line so that I can add it to the list and make sure that it gets corrected in a future printing.
