Ruth Reichl will be in conversation with Francis Lam to celebrate her new memoir, Save Me the Plums.  

When Condé Nast offered Ruth Reichl the top position at America’s oldest epicurean magazine, she declined. She was a writer, not a manager, and had no inclination to be anyone’s boss. Yet Reichl had been reading Gourmet since she was eight; it had inspired her career. How could she say no?

This is the story of a former Berkeley hippie entering the corporate world and worrying about losing her soul. It is the story of the moment restaurants became an important part of popular culture, a time when the rise of the farm-to-table movement changed, forever, the way we eat. Readers will meet legendary chefs like David Chang and Eric Ripert, idiosyncratic writers like David Foster Wallace, and a colorful group of editors and art directors who, under Reichl’s leadership, transformed stately Gourmet into a cutting-edge publication. This was the golden age of print media—the last spendthrift gasp before the Internet turned the magazine world upside down.

Complete with recipes, Save Me the Plums is a personal journey of a woman coming to terms with being in charge and making a mark, following a passion and holding on to her dreams—even when she ends up in a place she never expected to be.

Performs for

Sunday, March 3rd, 2019 - 5pm

1133 Broadway (25th - 26th Streets), New York City

Pyeng Threadgill will be celebrating the vinyl release of "Head Full Of Hair, Heart Full Of Song" performing selections from this album, which explores natural hair, ancestry and adornment as sources of power for Black women and women of color, as well as offering selections from her previous album "Portholes to A Love & Other Short Stories" inspired by short stories by world renowned authors such as Jamaica Kincaid, Isabelle Allende and Jhumpa Lahiri.

Joining her will be guitarist Andy Bianco and drummer Evan Pazner.

"I use music to create spaces that tell stories. Sometimes the music is performed in a traditional music setting but lately I have been drawn to less traditional music spaces because of how they help people to reimagine music. I want for people remember to fully connect to themselves through music by listening with their entire bodies and all their senses just the way one does when visiting someone's home. This is what New Porch Music inspires me to look into. Our individual and collective stories. My hope is that before, during and afterwards you will consider the deeper ways in which music, conversation and even silence impact and connect us all" (Pyeng Threadgill).
