I’m so psyched to be heading to Providence, our old stomping grounds, for a book event! Please join me on Thursday June 29th from 4:30-7:00 at Stock Culinary Goods for an evening of snacks, drinks, and chit chats about all things cooking, nutrition, and family. There will be books and cookies! Grab your friends and come out. I can’t wait to see you.

Photography for Feeding a Family: A Real-Life Plan for Making Dinner Work by Elizabeth Cecil.



Can you believe Feeding a Family’s publication date is only 7 days away!? I feel like I’ve been waiting years / months / days / hours to finally flip the calendar to April 11th 2017.

I’m having the best time dreaming up all the places I want to take this book and hope to swing through Boston, Providence, NYC, Washington DC, Maine, and maybe even out west this fall. Of course, there will be a ton of local book events here on island as well. I’ll announce all the official dates and details as they roll in but, up first, we will be celebrating at Morrice Florist this Sunday. If you are on Martha’s Vineyard or can make a fun day trip out of it, please come!

Here are the details:

Local authors Susie Middleton and Sarah Waldman, along with photographers Randi Baird and Elizabeth Cecil will be joined in conversation by Edible Vineyard’s Ali Berlow to celebrate the launch of their new cookbooks.

Q&A, book signing, small bites, and refreshments to follow.
