Food and friends

Sep 12, 2009

The North Carolina Literary Festival is all this weekend on the (still growing) campus of UNC-CH, so I stopped by this morning to listen to Kelly Alexander, Randall Kenan and Marcie Cohen Ferris talk about food writing.

At the same time as the food panel, my friends Wayne Sutton and Paul Jones were in the next building discussing Twitter as the newest tool for literature. I stopped by at the end, said hello to Wayne, met David B Thomas, then got a copy of Alexander’s book, Hometown Appetites: The story of Clementine Paddleford, the Forgotten Food Writer Who Chronicled How America Ate”: signed by her.

Later, at Weaver Street Market, I ran into my friend Rose Hoban. She’s planning on attending The Long Table dinner at 3CUPS next Sunday.
