Upcoming Event on December 5th!

Hello all! While I work on a post for next week (this week really got away from me, but it involved fun things like teaching a one-time instruction session/show-and-tell ALL about the culinary collection!), I did want to promote an upcoming event.

If you’re in the SW Virginia area, you’ll want to know about this! On December 5, 2014, the Peacock Harper Culinary Friends will be hosting a lunch and program: “British Holiday Brunch.” This event will be at the Kyle House in Fincastle, and includes a tour, brunch, and talk. This should be a wonderful event!

Please note: You do need to register in advance, by December 1, 2014! (The registration form is below the flyer.)

Upcoming Event!

Hello all! If you’re in the Roanoke area, you’ll probably want to know about an upcoming event! On November 14, 2014, the Peacock Harper Culinary Friends will be hosting a lunch and program: “The Culinary Influence of a Revolutionary Virginina: Mary Randolph and her book, The Virginia Housewife.” It will be held at the Roanoke Country Club from 11:30-1:30. Please note that you need to register for this event in advance (registration form is below the flyer). We’ve talked a lot about Mrs. Randolph’s book on the blog because it’s such a great piece of culinary history for Virginia. This should be a wonderful event!

Please note: You do need to register in advance, by November 9, 2014!

Two Upcoming Events

If you’re in or around Blacksburg, there are two upcoming events you may want to know about! On March 24, 2014, the University Libraries is co-hosting the Third Annual Edible Book Contest with the Blacksburg branch of the Montgomery-Floyd Public Libraries. There’s still plenty of time to register for the event (and we won’t turn you away at the door, either). You can visit the website to find out more and sign up: http://tinyurl.com/AEBC2014. Even if you don’t want to enter, please come to the Blacksburg Public Library from 6-7pm on March 24th. It’s your votes that will help us determine the winners in each category!

3rd Edible Book Contest

And, on March 25th from 5-7pm, the University Libraries will be hosting the Second Annual Appalanche. Appalanche is a celebration of Appalachian culture. This year, the event will include music and food, as well as displays and information about wildflowers, quilting, apples, the Wilderness Road Museum, and more! Your usual archivist/blogger Kira will share images and publications from Special Collections on apples. Be sure to stop by and visit us on the first floor of Newman Library that evening!
