Publication Studio NAFTA Tour 2011
In collaboration with One Pot and Third Place Press, we're hosting parties and sit-down dinners in twelve cities across North America, where twelve local chefs will each reinvent carne en su jugo, “meat in its own juice,” a Mexican staple, accompanied by tequila, agua frescas, wines, and conversation with Publication Studio co-founder, Matthew Stadler. Each dinner will include a special launch edition of Stadler's new novel, Chloe Jarren’s La Cucaracha, made expressly by Publication Studio and Third Place Press for that day and gathering.
The author will be posting a daily "tour diary" online that you can follow here.
