Chef Tanya Holland and author Anita Gail Jones celebrate National Book Month with soul food and stories, including recipe demonstrations from the chef’s award-winning “California Soul” cookbook published last year. Menu details coming soon!
The evening includes readings from the Novato author’s new novel, “The Peach Seed,” that chronicles a family saga of love and challenge while carrying readers across decades of Black history.
Chef Tanya won early acclaim with Brown Sugar Kitchen, the now-closed Oakland restaurant that inspired a 2014 cookbook. She has appeared on Bravo TV’s “Top Chef,” created a podcast and been named to the James Beard Foundation’s Board of Directors.
Born and raised in Albany, Georgia, Anita Gail Jones maintains a strong connection with the region that became the setting for her novel. Besides writing, she has worked as artist-in-residence in Bay Area schools and illustrated children’s books.
