Cookbook authors Jerrelle Guy (Black Girl Baking), Maggie Battista (Food Gift Love), and Lindsey Smith (Eat Your Feelings) are teaming up for an evening around food, feelings, and cookbook conversations.

The panel will discuss their food philosophies and how their feelings about food have grown, evolved or changed over the years. They will also be sharing insights about their journey to book publishing and will be sure to answer any of your burning questions during our audience Q&A.

We’ll also be serving snacks and drinks, including some samples from the books.
