A HOLIDAY Conversation with Meg Cotner, author of “Food Lovers’ Guide to Queens”, December 19, 2013
Back in July I asked Meg Cotner to come in to have a conversation about her new book Food Lovers’ Guide to Queens. It was a fun and successful show and at the end of it a brilliant idea flashed through my mind: Invite Meg back to talk about the holidays in Astoria. I asked and she agreed. At that time back in July the thermometer’s needle had inched over 100 degrees and THE HOLIDAYS seemed a lifetime, and a world, away. But suddenly here we are less then a week before Christmas and I have as yet not found my Holiday Spirit. Maybe tonight’s conversation will be the spark I need to ignite it. Though I have to admit that when I was in Astoria last Friday night to take most of the pictures you see in this entry it almost got me to humming Christmas Carols.
Just in case you’ve forgotten there are some of the links below for the things Meg’s been doing. Others you can find on the original blog I did back in July for the program we did then.
Look at those gingerbread houses.
Below are some of the places we may get to talk about tonight.
