Catching Up with Festival Favorites

Just because the Festival is over doesn’t mean we can’t keep in touch with some of our favorite presenters…

I really want to cook with Ruth Reichl sometime. She makes everything sound so simple and delicious, like these shrimp dumplings.

The Yes Men want you to vote for the Worst Corporation of 2009.

laurie-sandell-150x1501Congratulations to Laurie Sandell! Her graphic memoir, The Imposter’s Daughter, was just nominated for a 2009 Goodreads Choice Award. Members of Goodreads can vote for her by clicking here. Scroll down to Poll #9, Graphic Memoir, and vote! (And if you aren’t already a member of Goodreads, you should become one. It’s a great virtual library of what you’ve read and what you’re currently reading; plus, you can friend other bibliophiles and see what’s on their reading lists!)
