Events with Jamie

October 13, 2017

Chef Jamie Dement will be participating in the 10th Annual Authors in the Round at the Southern Festival of Books in Nashville, TN this year.

Authors in the Round was founded in 2008 by Jean Bottorff and Todd Bottorff, and has quickly become a signature event in Nashville and a vital  part of the Festival fundraising effort. The dinner takes place on the Friday of the Festival weekend at the historic War Memorial Auditorium. Guests mingle and dine with 40 Festival authors  for an evening of  literary conversation and celebration of the written word. The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with cocktails under the stars in the courtyard. For dinner, each table is paired with an author, and each guest at the table receives a copy of the author’s book. The evening concludes with specialty drinks in the courtyard.

 

The 10th Annual Authors in the Round dinner takes place on Friday, October 13, 2017. 

Tickets are $200 each and $1,600 for a table of eight. A portion of your ticket purchase is tax-deductible and all proceeds benefit the Southern Festival of Books.

The South Festival of Books has always been a free event that offers readers and writers an opportunity to interact, to create a public community around a festival that promotes and celebrates the joy of reading and of lifelong learning. Each year the Festival brings to Nashville approximately 200 of the nation's and region's most prominent authors, from legendary mystery writers to critically acclaimed debut novelists, from poets to biographers, from chefs to children's authors. Every author on the program takes part in a session, either a solo reading or a panel discussion, followed by a book signing in our Author Signing Colonnade. Books by all the participating authors are available for sale at Festival book sales area where proceeds support the Festival.

October 21, 2017

Join Chef Jamie Dement at The Regulator Bookstore in Durham, NC on October 21st at 3:00pm for a book signing. Chef Jamie will be in attendance signing copies of her book, The Farmhouse Chef.

About The Regulator Bookstore

A small and perhaps improbable bookstore opens its door for the first time on a cold Saturday morning. It is early in December, 1976. There's a vague memory of snow flurries in the air.

We set things up so that our first customer that morning was Agnes Birkhead, the grandmother of one of the store's founding lights. Agnes had been the court stenographer at the Scopes "monkey" trial and gone on to be Sinclair Lewis's personal assistant. Agnes Birkhead was a touchstone for us, a connection to a strong American tradition of truth-seeking and independent thinking. We hope that, 30 years on, our actions continue to honor her memory.
