Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with appetizers and a drink themed to Julia’s cookbook.  Food and drink will be catered by the Writer’s Block.  The program starts at 7 p.m. Julia will read for about 20 minutes from her book and explain its format, followed by audience Q&A with audience and conversation with Julia.
