Friends @ Home Fundraising Event | Cookin’ Jambalaya with Alice Wilson-Fried

September 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Please note: Registration for this event is required and is available here:

If you attended our recent author talk with Alice Wilson-Fried, or you have read her New Orleans novels, you know that the cuisine of the Big Easy is a big influence in her life. So we invited her to teach us how to make one of her favorites, Jambalaya.

On September 21 at 7:00 pm we will again welcome Alice, this time as a professor of hot fun cookery. She will be teaching us how to make Jambalaya the way we’re supposed to (or perhaps with personally selected variations). This is going to be a cook-along, so an ingredient list will be provided to you upon your registration for the event.

Alice has also promised to accompany her pot stirring with stories of New Orleans, and also talk about what libraries have meant to her.

Alice Wilson Fried grew up in New Orleans and attended Grambling College and Tulane University. She worked in public relations at the Delta Queen Steamboat Company before moving to California. She lived in Alameda for many years, before recently moving to be closer to her family. In addition to Outside Child and One Drop, she is the author of the non-fiction book Menopause, Sisterhood, and Tennis.

Please note: This will be a fundraiser for the Friends of the Alameda Free Library. There will be an admission charge of $25, payable upon registration.
