Eat It Book Cover

In the waiting room

Eat It was slim enough to fit in my purse and go with me wherever I went. Each contributor’s article may be just a page or a few, but I felt a connection to each writer and was laughing out loud in the waiting room and smiling to myself in public. I had to look around to see if anyone else caught me in my enjoyment.


At Word on the Street

I first discovered Eat It at World on the Street. I had met their publishers,  Feathertale, in previous years, and I was happy to discover that they had partnered with Nicole Baute and Brianna Goldberg to publish a book on sex, food, and women’s writing. Knowing Feathertale was a part of it, there were sure to be good laughs too.


History Lessons and Cooking with Friends

I was fascinated to learn the history of poison and it’s uses by women in the well-researched essay by Sarah Barmak. I felt as though I was standing with Victoria Martinez as she was sautéing her garlic and musing over love and hate. And I felt the grief of Bronwyn Kienapple as she realized she loved her boyfriend’s food more than him. And then there was Rebecca Kohler’s blush-worthy account of her encounter with a butcher. Each article in Eat It is an enjoyable exploration of sexuality, food, and relationships.


Find your desired topic

The editor in me was also happy to find that there’s an index in the back, just in case you’re the type who specifically looks for information on Michelina’s microwavable dinners or bathtub gin.


Get your copy at the launch for Eat It tonight at the Gladstone or buy in online or in a store near you.
