gopnikbook

Adam Gopnik comes to town in November to promote his new book.

Not everyone loves Adam Gopnik.

Wasn’t it James Wolcott, in 2007, who wrote: "I sometimes wonder if Adam Gopnik was put on this earth to annoy. If so, mission accomplished?" (That was a rhetorical question. It was indeed Wolcott, in a book review for the New Republic.)

But I’m willing to bet that Gopnik has some fans here in Seattle, fans who will want to secure the opportunity to have coffee with him on November 5 at Book Larder.

Book Larder, a new culinary book store opening October 12 at 4252 Fremont Ave N, is selling tickets to the event, which begins at 10am and includes coffee service, for $28.50. In addition to the opportunity to chat with Gopnik, guests will get a signed copy of his new book The Table Comes First: Family, France, and the Meaning of Food.

The book is scheduled for release on October 25.
