GEORGEANN BRENNAN considers A PIG IN PROVENCE. Thirty years ago, James Beard Award-winning author Georgeanne Brennan set out to realize the dream of a peaceful, rural existence en Provence. She and her husband, with their young daughter in tow, bought a small farmhouse with a little land, and a few goats and pigs - and so began a life-affirming journey. Filled with delicious recipes and local color, this evocative and passionate memoir describes her life cooking and living in the Proven├žal tradition - an entrancing tale that will whet the appetite and the spirit - perfect for foodies, Francophiles, or anyone who's dreamed of packing their bags and buying a ticket to the good life. Alice Waters writes, "Georgeanne Brennan's captivating memoir reminds me of why I, too, was enchanted by Provence. She beautifully captures the details of living in a place where the culture of the table ties a community together - where everyone knows the butcher and the baker, and everyone depends on the farmers." Georgeanne Brennan is an award-winning cookbook author and journalist who has won acclaim for her evocative and lyrical writing about food and gastronomy. She regularly writes features for The San Francisco Chronicle's food section and is a regular contributor to Fine Cooking, Bon Appetit, and Cooking Pleasures. She has also contributed to The New York Times, Horticulture, Organic Gardening and more, and has been featured in Food and Wine, Gourmet, and Sunset magazines. Brennan is active in the Slow Food movement and is currently co-leader of the Slow Food Yolo Convivium. 7:00 PM at Cody's Fourth Street, Berkeley
