Many of you—especially busy parents of young kids—have asked if Kid Food will ever be released in an audiobook format. (Representative exhausted parent quote: “I’m sorry, but that’s the only way I can ‘read’ anything these days!!!” 😆 )
So I’m thrilled to report that yes, an audiobook version will be released on December 19th and can be preordered now on Audible! (Side note: as a writer, I can’t even imagine what it feel like to hear a narrator reading aloud words that I’ve only ever “heard” in my own head. Wacky!)
East Coast Book Tour Starts THIS WEEK
Meanwhile, for those of you living in or near NYC and DC, I’m about to embark on my East Coast book tour and would love to meet you in person! Here’s the schedule:
MANHATTAN: Thursday, November 14th at 7pm, I’ll be talking about Kid Food with some of my food policy heroes: Marion Nestle, professor emerita of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University, Pam Koch, executive director of the Laurie M. Tisch Center for Food, Education & Policy, Program in Nutrition, Teachers College, Columbia University, and Charles Platkin, executive director of the Hunter College NYC Food Policy Center. The event will be held at Hunter College’s uptown location (2180 Third Avenue at 119th, in the main auditorium on the second floor.) Doors open at 6:30pm and light refreshments will be provided, with a book signing to follow. Please note that this is a free but ticketed event! Sign up here.
BROOKLYN: Saturday, November 16th at 11am, I’ll be visiting the Maple Street School (626 Flatbush Avenue) to talk about Kid Food, answer parent questions, and sign books provided by the wonderful Greenlight Bookstore.
WASHINGTON, DC: Tuesday, November 19th at 7pm, I’ll be at Politics & Prose (5015 Connecticut Ave, NW), where I’ll be interviewed by the fabulous Aviva Goldfarb, Washington Post contributor, cookbook author and food and beverage marketer. You can find us downstairs in the Children and Teens section, with a book signing to follow.
Recent Media Coverage of Kid Food
By the way, if you haven’t yet read Kid Food and would like to learn more about it, I just wanted to let you know that all of the book’s media coverage may be found here, on bettinasiegel.com, my new book/author website.
I’m so grateful for all of the prominent attention the book has received so far—including pieces in the New York Times, Real Simple, Civil Eats, Heated, Texas Monthly, the Houston Chronicle, and more—and for the enthusiastic reception it seems to be getting from early readers.
