The White Hart Speaker Series presented in collaboration with Oblong Books & Music and the Scoville Memorial Library
In his new biography “The Gourmand’s Way : Six Americans in Paris and the Birth of a New Gastronomy” Justin Spring focuses on the most joyful, exciting, formative, and dramatic moments in the lives of six pre-eminent writers, many of which were intimately connected to the exploration and discovery of fine French food and drink. Featuring A. J. Liebling, Alice B. Toklas, M.F.K. Fisher, Julia Child, Alexis Lichine, and Richard Olney. The Gourmands’ Way is the first book ever to look at these unforgettable figures as a group. It is also the first to focus specifically on their Paris-based adventure.
