Noted author Justin Spring has cooked up a storm with his latest novel, The Gourmand’s Way, a pseudo-biography following six people whose French style of cooking made American kitchens sing. He will join Brazos Bookstore for a special presentation of the book Wednesdsay, interacting with the crowd and sharing stories from his book following an introduction by Alison de Lima Greene, the Isabel Brown Wilson Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. “For this publication, he’s turned his eye to the 30-year period between World War II and the 1970s, the culture and art of French cuisine in the time and how Americans interacted with it,” says Sara Balabanlilar, Brazos’s marketing director. “It ranges from Julia Child to Alice B. Toklas.”
