I’ve got a handful of appearances coming up in the Northeast, so if you’re in the area come on by! I’d love to meet you.
First up, for parents:
On Saturday, April 27 (one week from tomorrow!), I’m giving a talk called “Baby Food 101” at Brooklyn Babyfest. I’ll cover all the basics related to starting solids: How to know when your baby’s ready, what to feed him or her, and of course, how to use what you’re already cooking as baby food. Tickets for Babyfest, a day-long event featuring oodles of speakers, vendors, and demos, are $15 in advance, $25 day-of. If you’re in BK and a new (or about-to-be) parent, you won’t want to miss this.
And for writers:
On Thursday, April 25, I’m speaking on a panel at the ASJA conference here in New York. ASJA stands for American Society of Journalists & Authors, and their annual conference has been tremendously helpful to me in my career as a writer. My panel focuses on book tours, and I’ll be speaking about tours of the virtual variety. (I did a pretty substantial one for Parents Need to Eat Too last year.) Thursday’s sessions are open only to members of ASJA, but if you’re interested in a career in writing, Friday and Saturday are both open to the public.
On Sunday, June 2, I’m speaking at Eat Write Retreat, an intensive (not to mention fun) weekend for food bloggers. This year it’s in Philadelphia, and my fellow speakers include such luminaries as Monica Bhide, Marisa McClellan, Joy Manning, and Sarah Caron. My topic: Juggling. Keeping up with more than one blog, your blog and your home life, your blog and your full-time job… Y’know, life.
There you have it. Three chances to meet me, and three chances to learn A LOT about issues that might change your life, from folks who are walking the talk.
