Jul ’17
7:00 pm

Christina Ward is a Master Food Preserver and doesn’t want you to kill Aunt Edna with a jar of pickles.  Her book, Preservation: The Art and Science of Canning, Fermentation and Dehydration (Process Media, Inc.) explains the science, the concepts, and techniques that will help me make delicious and nutritious foods. (And keep Aunt Edna alive.)

She’ll talk about food preservation history, how women were left out of that history, and the cutting-edge research about our gut biomes. She’ll also share the secret to consistent food safety. (Spoiler: wash your damn hands.) Come for the door prizes, stay for the science!

“Between the understandable yet solid science, and the direct, no-nonsense, yet delicious-sounding recipes, it is without hesitation that I encourage you to read this book from cover to cover.”  Nancy Singleton Hachisu, James Beard nominated writer of Preserving the Japanese Way and Japanese Farm Food

It’s really cool!” –Daniel Gritzer, Culinary Director, Serious Eats

Christina Ward’s work has been featured in The Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel, Remedy Quarterly, Edible Milwaukee, Serious Eats, The Runcible Spoon, and more. She has been featured on podcasts and radio shows such as Central Time (WPR) and Arts & Seizures (Heritage Radio).

Erin Osmon Reads From Jason Molina: Riding with the Ghost & Hosts a Q&A with members of Songs: Ohia 6/17

Jun ’17
7:00 pm

In Jason Molina: Riding with the Ghost (Rowman & Littlefield), author Erin Osmon presents an intensely researched, yet human account of the Rust Belt-born musician Jason Molina. The songwriting giant behind the bands Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co. had a knack for spinning tales, from the many personal myths he created and cultivated throughout this life, to the volumes of oblique poems and working man ballads he penned and performed. With the help of Molina’s family, friends and record label, Osmon details Molina’s trials and triumphs, from his earliest days as a trailer park kid in Lorain, Ohio, though his extensive world touring and his last days as a struggling artist addicted to alcohol. As the first authorized account of the prolific musician, Jason Molina: Riding with the Ghost provides readers with unparalleled insight into Molina’s life and the Midwest underground that supported his meteoric rise.

“In Jason Molina: Riding with the Ghost, Erin Osmon gives us a riveting biography not only of a great musician whose work deserves to be much wider known, but a well-rounded portrait of a fascinating human being, as well as a glimpse into the creative process. It’s a ride well worth taking.”—Jim DeRogatis, co-host, Sound Opinions, author, Let It Blurt: The Life and Times of Lester Bangs

Erin Osmon is a Chicago-based writer who covers music and culture. Her work has appeared in dozens of local and national publications like the Chicago Tribune and SPIN. She also writes liner notes for deluxe reissues of historic albums. For more info: erinosmon.com
