Read It and Eat 2nd Birthday and Independent Bookstore Day

April 29, 2017 | 12:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Read It & Eat is building a day full of events to celebrate Independent Bookstore Day -- a one-day national party at indie bookstores across the country and the fact that they are turning the big o-two. In their case, there will be food of course! They’ll have plenty of snacks to go around, including scoops from Dana Cree's Hello My Name Is Ice Cream from 12 to 6 p.m.
In addition to book signings from some of their favorite local authors and esteemed California chef Jeremy Fox, they will also play two rounds of Foodie Fight: A Trivia Game for Serious Food Lovers.
The store will also be open an extra hour (until 8 p.m.) and every purchase will be 15% off throughout the day. Everyone is welcome! 
The book signing schedule and game times are as follows:
12 p.m. -- Signing with Anupy Singla, author of Indian for Everyone
12:45 p.m. -- Signing with photographer Dan Goldberg & stylist Andrea Kuhn, authors of Cuba! Stories & Recipes from the Cuban Kitchen
1:30 p.m. -- Foodie Fight Game, moderated by pastry chef Malika Ameen, author of Sweet Sugar, Sultry Spice
2:45 p.m. -- Signing with Dana Cree, pastry chef & author of Hello, My Name Is Ice Cream
4:15 p.m. -- Signing with Jeremy Fox, chef at Rustic Canyon & author of On Vegetables
5 p.m. -- Foodie Fight Game
6:15 p.m. -- Screening of Chef's Table: Virgilio Martinez (BYOB, snacks provided)
They hope to see one and all at the store to celebrate indie books, good food and good people on April 29!
