Nana's Creole Italian Table

Join us Aug 19th 6-8p for an evening with Liz Williams

Red Stick Reads is thrilled to announce our next author
event happening at the shop!! Please join us on the evening of Friday, August
19th as we welcome local author, Elizabeth Williams to share her new
book, Nana’s Creole Italian Table.   

In addition to authoring several books, Elizabeth Williams is
also the founder of the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in New Orleans, and
now part of the National Food and Beverage Foundation.  She also hosts a weekly podcast, Tip of the

In her newest book, Nana’s Creole Italian Table, Williams blends
the two great food traditions in her life: 
New Orleans and Sicily.  She has
written a cookbook that not only shares some of her families’ traditional
Sicilian recipes, but moreover shares her families’ story of immigration and how
these recipes changed and evolved as a result of the Creole influences from New
Orleans where her family immigrated to.

We are so excited to have Elizabeth come share some of her family
stories with us!  We are also encouraging
our community to share some of your own family stories of immigration and food as
well. We will have some small bites to sample from some of the dishes featured
in Nana’s Creole Kitchen Table, as well as water, juice and soft drinks.

So mark your calendars, bring your own bottle of wine, a
family story to share and come support one of our wonderful local authors!


Nana’s Creole Kitchen Table is available now at Red Stick
Reads! Liz will be signing her book at the event.

We get by with a little help from our friends

There exists really cool businesses out there who are propping up independent bookstores by allowing us to sell their inventory and get a cut of the profits. We are affliated with several of them to better supply print books, e books and audiobooks. With only 350sq ft of store we cant possibly have everything you may want. We won't even have everything we want! They are here to help us, help you.
