Upcoming Events: Philly! Brooklyn! Manhattan!

Did I mention that the Food in Jars stickers are in? They are free with every book purchase!

The last couple weeks have been the calm before the storm. If you thought my Southern book tour was a major endeavor, just wait until you see what I’ve got up my sleeve for June and July. Actually, you don’t have to wait at all. The entire summer schedule can be found on my Classes and Events page, if you want to take a gander and plug a date into your calendar.

For those of you in the Philadelphia or New York areas, my next three events are just for you. There are still lots of seats available in both those classes, so grab yours now!

Upcoming Events: Broomall! Drexel! Greensgrow! Occasionette!

PbtP stack

I’ve got a hearty handful of events happening this week and I hope some of you will come to pick up a book or two. You probably know this already, but both Preserving by the Pint and Food in Jars make excellent Mother’s Day gifts.

On Tuesday, May 6, I’m doing a small batch jam demonstration and book signing at the Marple Public Library (2599 Sproul Road) in Broomall, PA. The demo kicks off at 7:30 pm and I’ll have samples for tasting and books for sale.

This Wednesday, May 7, I’m doing a small batch canning demo for the Women’s Studies program at Drexel University. Oops! Just learned that this one is for members of the Drexel community, only. If you’re affiliated with the University, I’d love to see you there!

Saturday, May 10 is a two-fer. From 10 am to 1 pm, I’ll be at Greensgrow Farms (the original, Kensington location) to sell/sign books, answer canning questions, and do a small batch strawberry jam demo (probably around 11 am).

Later that day, I’ll be at Occasionette in South Philly for E. Passyunk Avenue’s monthly Second Saturday avenue crawl. I’ll be there from 5-8 pm with preserves from my pantry and books to sell and sign. I’m also doing a small batch demo that we’ll start around 5:30 pm.
