Meet the Author: Fred Sauceman

April 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Fred Sauceman, who celebrates the foodways of his native Appalachia in books, articles, and on radio and television, will speak at the Johnson City Public Library on Wednesday, April 9, at noon. A self-described cooking junkie, Sauceman has discovered our own delicious diners, drive-ins, and dives during his exploration of the culinary delights of our region.

Fred Sauceman is a native of Greeneville, Tennessee, and is Senior Writer and Associate Professor of Appalachian Studies at ETSU and News Director for WETS-FM/HD. He is the editor of the Southern Foodways Alliance book “Cornbread Nation 5: The Best of Southern Food Writing,” published by the University of Georgia Press in 2010, in partnership with the University of Mississippi. He is creator of the book “Home and Away: A University Brings Food to the Table,” published by ETSU in 2000.

Sauceman’s most recent book is coming soon from Mercer University Press: “Buttermilk & Bible Burgers: more stories from the kitchens of Appalachia.” In this book Fred Sauceman pays tribute to “people loyal to the land and proud of their culinary heritage.” The audience will have the opportunity to ask Sauceman about the “transformative power of a glass of Tennessee buttermilk.”

The Friends will be holding a special used cookbook sale in conjunction with the talk. Come and find your new favorite cookbook!

This free event will be a “Bring Your Own” bag lunch, with beverages and desserts provided by the Friends of the Johnson City Public Library. This Meet the Author talk is sponsored by the Friends of the Johnson City Public Library. For more information, please call 434-4450 or the Reference Desk at 434-4454.
