This year’s festival is a literary feast for the foodie in all of us! We celebrate the pleasures of the palate, catch up on gastronomic zeitgeists, and examine the future of food.

The event features local and national authors, food visionaries, and culinary experts who are not afraid to challenge the way we think about food and our food systems.

I will be reading from Spirit Baby: Travels through China on the Long Road to Motherhood from 11:00 to 11:10. (I picked a fun passage about foreign food adventures while traveling in China).

Our final author lineup and schedule of activities is still simmering. Check back soon for more details. The event will be held at The Art Lab, 239 Linden Street, Fort Collins, CO 80524 on October 18 and 19. For more information visit
