Meet the Author: Hannah Howard

06:00 pm to 07:00 pm

Join us in welcoming Hannah Howard, author of the soon-to-be-released memoir, FEAST: True Love in and out of the Kitchen. 

About the Book:

The compulsively readable memoir of a woman at war—with herself, with her body, and with food—while working her way through the underbelly of New York City’s glamorous culinary scene.

Hannah Howard is a Columbia University freshman when she lands a hostess job at Picholine, a Michelin-starred restaurant in Manhattan. Eighteen years old and eager to learn, she’s invigorated by the manic energy and knife-sharp focus of the crew. By day Hannah explores the Columbia arts scene, struggling to find her place. By night she’s intoxicated by boxes of heady truffles and intrigued by the food industry’s insiders. She’s hungry for knowledge, success, and love, but she’s also ravenous because she hasn’t eaten more than yogurt and coffee in days.

Hannah is hiding an eating disorder. The excruciatingly late nights, demanding chefs, bad boyfriends, and destructive obsessions have left a void inside her that she can’t fill. To reconcile her relationships with the food she worships and a body she struggles to accept, Hannah’s going to have to learn to nourish her soul.

Please join us as we celebrate the Reopening of the Community Room at the Waterbury Train Station! Details: Free coffee and cake, brief speaking program, welcome the Amtrak train at 10:10 am. Revitalizing Waterbury partnered with the Waterbury Historical Society to update and refresh the look of the Community Room, which was restored in 2006. Historical Society museum curator Jack Carter envisioned historical items and photographs associated with Waterbury’s train history displayed throughout the room. Of particular interest are the murals from the former Arvad’s restaurant and painted by local artist Sarah-Lee Terrat now beautifully decorating the walls. The Community Room includes tourist information and maps and is a popular destination for families who wish to view the working model train.
