Carroll Lassiter, an Edenton native and the artist whose painting is on the cover of White Gloves and Collards, was interviewed on a UNC-TV program about Chapel Hill area artists. (Her interview is at the beginning of the program.)
Enjoyed two book-related events this week. Did an Author Talk on Tuesday night at the beautiful Fallbrook Public Library. Then on Wednesday, I read from White Gloves and Collards at a UNC alumni "salon" led by English and Comparative Literature professor, Jane Danielewicz. Fun to be around a bunch of smart Tarheels!
After interviewing me last Saturday for her 550 KFYI radio program, "In the Kitchen with Jan," Jan d'Atri wrote about White Gloves and Collards recipes (including Sock-it-to-me Poundcake) in her weekly Scottsdale Republic column.
On Tuesday morning, I did an interview on "San Diego Living" with Marc Bailey. It was fun to see what goes on behind the scenes in a TV studio! You can watch the short, five-minute segment below.
It was great to share White Gloves and Collards with friends, family, and other readers at the Barker House in Edenton, Quail Ridge Books & Music in Raleigh, McIntyre's Books in Fearrington Village, and Park Road Books in Charlotte (see slide show below). I even got to be interviewed by Mike Collins of "Charlotte Talks" on NPR affiliate WFAE. Click here to listen to the interview.
