At a Gourmet
-sponsored event at Copia
years ago, some guests were a little surprised at how soft spoken Ruth Reichl
can be onstage. Find out for yourself later this month, when Reichl will be on stage at the S.F. Jewish Community Center, talking about her latest book, For You Mom, Finally
(Penguin Press, $13). Reichl is the author of Comfort Me with Apples
, Tender at the Bone
, Not Becoming My Mother: and Other Things She Taught Me Along the Way
, and Garlic and Sapphires
. Her new book is a reflection on her mother's life, and the sacrifices and pain an older generation of women endured. The 11 a.m. start time on a Tuesday means you'll have to blow off work that morning, or go to lunch afterward and ditch the office altogether.
