What are the Tables of Contents monthly readings?
Every month, we gather a handful of the most exciting literary talents around (really truly world-class, we’re so lucky) and ask them to read a piece of new work that alludes to food before a small audience. Then chef Evan Hanczor cooks a tasting menu with a course corresponding to each reading. After, Evan leads all the authors in an intimate, wide-ranging conversation about their writing practice, their quirky eating habits, the intersections of food and art, and more.
