Pamela Walker wants you to know you are where what you eat grows. Her book, Growing Good Things to Eat in Texas, chronicles 11 Lone Star State farmers and ranchers through interviews and photographs by Linda Walsh (no relation to Pressfood critic Robb Walsh). The two will sign and discuss the book today, and afterwards they'll open up the floor...to the fields. The event concludes with a mini-farmers' market in the parking lot with plenty of fresh produce, Saint Arnold's beer and serving suggestions. Author and executive chef at Brennan's of Houston Randy Evans will be cooking up some demonstrations of how to use the day's offerings in your own kitchen. Don't forget to bring your own shopping bags (because having to ask for one is so 2007). 4 p.m. Brazos Bookstore, 2421 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-523-0701 or visit www.brazosbookstore.com.
