A Night of Food, Books, & Knitting with Ann Hood

Ann's new memoir, Kitchen Yarns: Notes on Life, Love, and Food will be released in paperback on Dec 3. Hood writes about how various meals connect to something deeper in her life--loss, family, confusion, growing up, grief, joy, and love. Ann grew up eating. A lot. Her culinary life began in her Italian American childhood in West Warwick, RI and then expanded when she traveled the world as a TWA flight attendant. It was during this time she grew sophisticated and threw dinner parties for friends and cooked for her three beloved children. Today, Ann is married to the food writer, Michael Ruhlman. She has found that food can comfort and uplift, bring people together, and offer hope in dark times. It is a book to be read for anyone who has ever loved, lost, and started over from scratch. Each chapter contains recipes and nourishment of both body and soul.

Ann Hood is the author of nine previous books, including the best-selling memoir, Comfort: A Journey Through Grief and best-selling novels The Book That Matters Most and The Knitting Circle. She lives in Providence, RI.

Free and open to all with an Eventbrite ticket.
Made possible by Friends of Barrington Public Library and our partners, Inkfish Books and Meraki Stitch Studio.
