Besides our usual fabulous open mic, we featured reader, chef/author Shaina Loew-Banayan, whose new book, Elegy for an Appetite,
just got a glowing review in the New Yorker. In tender, lyrical prose, Shaina writes about what it's like to be a chef
(and passionate foodie) with an eating disorder. Shaina is the chef and owner of Café Mutton in Hudson.
This reading was followed by our regular literary open mic and a book signing.
