FOOD TO FICTION
Days / Lisa Cole

 

Wednesday, June 20
7-10pm

 

Partnering with Days and Lisa Cole, we are back with the next installment of the popular Food to Fiction dinner!

 

 

This version is based around the question—What is the LA story? We explore this through an evening of vegan food woven around the women whose stories shaped Los Angeles. From Helen Hunt Jackson to Charlotta Bass, Joan Didion to Janet Finch, Lisa See to Vanessa Place, we wander though the fictions of this place.

 

 

One ticket includes a 3 course meal, cocktail by @folosophy, wine, and an interactive evening of fun!
