Event Announcements: Culinary Historians of Southern California

The Culinary Historians of Southern California (CHSC) have reminded us of the following events that are coming up and open to Slow Food members and friends:

Sunday, August 6, 2006: CHSC Annual Used Cookbook Sale at the Hollywood Farmers’ Market. Begins at 8:00am and lasts until 1:00pm (or until books are sold out). Cookbooks, culinary ephemera, menus, etc. are desperately needed for the sale in advance. To donate, contact Billie Connor-Dominguez (213.228.7201) to arrange delivery to the Central Library. If it would be more convenient to deliver to the Hollywood Branch Library, arrangements can be made with the Branch Library Manager, Dora Suarez, (323.856.8270).

Volunteers are needed to assist with the sale, also. Please contact Billie Connor-Dominguez by phone at 213.228.7201 or by email to bconnor [at] lapl [dot] org. (Remember, only volunteers are able to “preview” the book selection!)

The Used Cookbook Sale is the CHSC’s primary fundraising event and enables the CHSC to purchase wonderful additions to the Central Library Culinary collection.
