Following recommendations from the CDC, we regret that this event has been CANCELLED.

St. Louis County Library presents food writer Ruth Reichl who will sign and discuss her book, Save Me The Plums.

Trailblazing food writer and beloved restaurant critic Ruth Reichl took the job (and the risk) of a lifetime when she entered the high-stakes world of magazine publishing. Now, for the first time, she chronicles her groundbreaking tenure as editor in chief of Gourmet. Complete with recipes, “Save Me the Plums” is a personal journey of a woman coming to terms with being in charge and making a mark, following a passion and holding on to her dreams—even when she ends up in a place she never expected to be.

Tickets go on sale March 12 and can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets or at Library Headquarters. Seating will be offered on a first come, first served basis.
