Reading & Book Signing July 24!

Historic Apple Acres is hosting an author talk and book signing!

Award-winning food writer Kathy Biehl will talk about the roles that food plays in our lives (way beyond nutrition) and read from her latest book Eat, Drink & Be Wary: Cautionary Tales. Copies will be available for purchase. If you already have it, bring your copy and Kathy will sign it!

Join her from 4-6 PM Saturday, July 24 at Apple Acres, 1064 Union Valley Road, West Milford, NJ (home to Passaic County’s largest community garden).

Eat, Drink & Be Wary explores the joys, quirks and questionable behavior that food and drink inspire.  From Houston’s burgeoning culinary landscape to late-night revelry in Britain and Barcelona to a Hell’s Kitchen TV studio, it captures a way of life we take for granted no longer, when people freely gathered at tables and counters, shared food, raised glasses, and partook of drama and laughter and magic.

It’s also very funny.

Kathy reviewed restaurants in Houston and NYC and covered the specialty food industry, for more than 30 years. Her food writing has won awards from the Association of Food Journalists and the Houston Press Club. She is also an attorney, an actress best known for the dowager role in the first revival of the Marx Brothers’ musical I’ll Say She Is, and an astrologer.
