P&P Live! : Ruth Reichl - Save Me the Plums: My Gourmet Memoir

Upcoming Event
Sunday, May 10, 2020 - 5:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

Reichl has won six James Beard Awards for her food writing, and countless readers’ hearts with her engaging series of memoirs. Now available in paperback, the follow-up to her bestselling Tender at the Bone, Comfort Me With Apples, and Garlic and Sapphires, covers her remarkable decade as the last editor in chief of Gourmet. The nation’s oldest epicurean magazine, Gourmet inspired Reichl’s own career, and though she was reluctant to leave her position as The New York Times restaurant critic, she transformed the revered publication into a cutting-edge journal for new ways of thinking about food. At the same time, working at the magazine changed her, and this book is as much a journey of personal discovery as it is a candid, vivid insider’s look at the glamorous world of the glossies just as the digital era changed everything.


Instead of a set ticket price, we ask that you contribute what you can to support Politics and Prose Bookstore and our virtual event series. We know that everyone has been affected in these trying times, and we will continue to make our programming accessible to all. That said, a suggested contribution of $5, $10, whatever you can afford, will go a long way to keep our programming—and our bookstore—afloat as we are forced to adapt to new ways of business.  

The other way you can support us is always by purchasing a copy of the book from our website.

We are so grateful to be surrounded by such a loyal and engaged community and we thank you for your support, now and always.
