Georgeanne Brennan at Mrs. Dalloway’s
April 28, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Join James Beard Award winner Georgeanne Brennan as she reads from her newest book, Windows on Provence: Musings on the Food, Wine, and Culture of the South of France.
Georgeanne Brennan evocatively renders an insider’s knowledge of Provence’s villages and their ancient customs and traditions. Through rich essays, each examining a unique facet of Provencal culture, she shares her view of the southern region of the country. Brennan’s engaging text, together with alluring photographs, takes the reader on an unforgettable tour, from the sun-drenched Cote d’Azur to the craggy mountains of Haute Provence; to lavender, poppy and wheat fields; through markets full of richly-hued fabrics, antiques and seasonal specialties; to harbors filled with fishermen selling the morning’s catch; over hills covered in vines; and into centuries-old buildings and castle ruins, all brought to life through the author’s eyes.
Georgeanne will be reading from Windows on Provence, signing, and answering questions; enjoy wine and snacks and be whisked away for a Provençal afternoon.
