Calling all Martha Stewart Fans
Not only will she be coming to Barnes & Noble at MarketFair on Route 1 in Princeton on May 2, but the store is also holding a contest whereby you can win a free autographed copy of her new book, Martha’s American Food and be first in line!
Since she’s coming so close to Mother’s Day (heads up: it’s May 13), the store is picking up on that with a “My Most Martha Mother’s Day Memory” contest. I have no idea what that memory might look like but here’s the deal, straight from the Princeton store and in its entirety:
“To enter, simply send a .jpeg image, reduced for email, and 25 words or less to email@example.com by April 25. Winner selected by Princeton Barnes & Noble and notified by April 30. The .jpeg images will not be returned and may be used for promotion. Please be sure to have permission of anyone depicted in the photo for its use.”
And here’s the deal on Stewart’s appearance at the store on Wednesday, May 2, at 5 pm: Line pass distribution begins at 1 pm with line formation following at that time. You must buy a copy of her book to be allowed a place in line to meet her and get it autographed.
Princeton University Grad/Chef Returns to Guest-Cook in the Dining Halls
I think it’s rare enough that a PU graduate goes on to become a chef/restaurateur – especially one with a degree in politics – but that is just what Valerie Erwin, class of ’79, has done.
Read all about her stint as visiting chef, her Philly restaurant, Geechee Girl Rice Cafe, and her life path in my latest column in The Princeton Packet. Her terrific recipe for black-eyed peas and rice is included.
