P&S MonthlyPaper and Salt is dedicated to recipes of famous writers, but sometimes I get questions that I’d love to answer here. What should I make for a literary book club? Where did you get that author’s quote, and where can I read more about it? Can I visit Allen Ginsberg’s favorite bar?

That’s why I’m starting Paper and Salt Monthlya (very occasional) newsletter that brings you news about bookish food and food-ish books that you won’t find on the blog.

Upcoming issues will include:

  • literary menu suggestions and drink pairings
  • trivia and links about authors and their culinary habits
  • writer’s birthdays and suggested ways to celebrate
  • guides to restaurants and bars with a bookish history
  • giveaways of books that are particularly great
  • the occasional exclusive recipe

The first issue, out next week, will get in the holiday spirit with a menu for a literary feast, featuring a new recipe from the archived papers of F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald.

Sign up here to get the December newsletter. And stay tuned for another new holiday recipe next week!
