Ruth Reichl, Legendary Food Writer, will celebrate her Debut Novel, Delicious! Reservations are Sold Out and Author Autographed Hardcovers can still be Ordered!

Reservations are SOLD OUT.  However, Author Autographed Hardcovers of Delicious! can still be Ordered!  Order Yours Now!  EVENT OVERVIEW:  Ruth Reichl, Legendary Food Writer, will present her Debut Novel Delicious!  This Event is Co-Sponsored by Rainy Day Books and Friends of the Children's Center for the Visually Impaired (CCVI).

ABOUT RUTH REICHL:  Ruth Reichl was born and raised in Greenwich Village. She wrote her first cookbook at 21, and went on to be the restaurant critic of both the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times. She was Editor-in-Chief of Gourmet Magazine for ten years. She now lives with her husband in upstate New York. She is the Author of several Books including the highly acclaimed, National Bestselling Memoir Tender at the Bone.

ABOUT DELICIOUS!: A NOVEL:  At the heart of this Book is a memorable character—Billie Breslin—who leaves California for New York to start a new job at a food magazine and to begin a new life, leaving behind her family, and a heartbreaking mystery about her beloved sister.  Reichl carries the reader to the colorful world of downtown New York restaurateurs and artisanal purveyors, and from the bustling food shop in Little Italy where Billie works on weekends to a hidden room in the magazine’s library where she discovers intriguing letters written by a girl in Ohio to James Beard over 50 years ago.  Little does Billy know that these letters will soon change her life forever.  Weaving together a love story, a family tragedy, and the search to uncover secrets from the past and the present, Delicious!: A Novel explores themes of reinvention, identity, and independence.  Ruth Reichl has given us a beautiful coming of age story and has proven once again that food defines us and brings us together.  It is an exciting and fun novel, even as it eloquently makes the case that it is those closest to us who most often elude us.
