For everyone who is missing the Ramp Fest and Taste of Hudson, there's a new food event making its inaugural appearance this year: Read & Feed. This Saturday, Basilica Hudson partners with CLMP (Community of Literary Magazines and Presses) to present a festival that brings together artisanal makers of food and artisanal makers of literature.
The event, which takes place from 5 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, July 30, will feature panel discussions that bring together writers, farmers, and chefs, cooking and mixology demonstrations, a marathon reading of John Cage's Diary: How to Improve the World (You Will Only Make Matters Worse), and a marketplace featuring more than twenty small press publishers, artisanal food makers, and spectacular eats and drinks.
This morning, on WAMC's Roundtable, Joe Donahue spoke about Read & Feed with people involved in organizing it: Jeffrey Lependorf, executive director of CLMP; Lisa Pearson, publisher of Siglio Press; and Michael Albin, proprietor of Hudson Wine Merchants. That interview can be heard here.
