Slow Food Portland Writers Night

Thursday, Mar 10, 2011 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM

It is time for the SIXTH annual Slow Food Portland Writers Night. For the second year in a row, the event will coincide with Maine Restaurant Week to further the Maine culinary experience. Writers Night is an evening filled with delicious local foods and engaging readings from authors near and far. This year the subjects covered will range from Italian food to farming in its various guises. As a new addition to the program the winner of the first annual Young Food Writers Competition will read their winning essay. This year our line up includes: Melissa Coleman, daughter of gardening guru Eliot Coleman and author of the upcoming, This Life Is In Your Hands, One Dream, Sixty Acres and a Family Undone; John Mariani, columnist for Esquire and author of How Italian Food Conquered the World, and Manny Howard, author of My Empire of Dirt. As in years past there will be a variety of tasty food offerings - the best Maine has to offer from land to sea. After the program, all authors will be on hand to sign copies of their books, which will be for sale at the event. Below is a list of the authors and their books. The doors will open at 6:00, the speakers will start at 6:30. Food starts at 6:00. Tickets are $25, $20 for Slow Food members and are available online at SPACE Gallery, Rabelais, Aurora Provisions and Rosemont Markets. For more information contact Rabelais at 774 1044
