Words & Wine with Frank Bruni, author of 'Born Round: The Secret History of a Full-Time Eater'
Words & Wine events take place at the elegant Pan Pacific Hotel Seattle, where guests will mingle with Frank Bruni while sipping award-winning wines from Ste Michelle Wine Estates and enjoying savory nibbles from Seastar restaurant.  For the evening's highlight, the engaging Warren Etheredge, of The Warren Report, leads an on-stage interview and conversation with the author.  After the talk and a Q&A session, Bruni will personalize your book for you.
A copy of 'Born Round: The Secret History of a Full-Time Eater' is included in the $50 ticket price, as well as all appetizers and wine.

--------------------
Frank Bruni was born round: stout, chubby, and hungry. He grew up in a big, loud Italian family in White Plains, New York, where meals were epic affairs and where he learned one of his foremost qualifications for his future career: an outsize love of food.  When Bruni was named the restaurant critic for The New York Times in 2004, he knew enough to be nervous--it is one of the most closely watched tasks in the food world--and he had spent his career covering politics, political campaigns and the Pope. Yes, he was the Times Rome Bureau chief and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, but did his love affair with food qualify him to be one of the most loved and/or hated tastemakers in the food world?  His memoir 'Born Round: The Secret History of a Full-Time Eater' traces his unusual path to becoming a restaurant critic, and is a brutally honest, sometimes funny, often painful tale of his complex and lifelong struggle with food.  
   "Frank Bruni has written a food memoir for our time, plumbing the depths of our personal and collective eating disorders.  By turns shocking and hilarious, 'Born Round' is as addictive as Chinese Sesame Noodles and as satisfying as Grandma Bruni's lasagna."  
   -Michael Pollan
