Millicent Souris book signing/reading this Sunday!


A busy day for us, at least as far as book signings are concerned! Not only are we hawking wares at Dave Hill's UP show, but our dear friend Millicent Souris is coming to saki to read from and sign copies of her gorgeous new book How to Build a Better Pie: Sweet and Savory Recipes for Flaky Crusts, Toppers, and the Things in Between.

Millicent is a former CTD employee. Having seen The Warriors several times in our youth, when she told us of her intent to move to NYC, we of course did our best to dissuade from our clear vision of her new hardscrabble life on the streets–a life eking out a living in Washington Square Park, waxing rhapsodic on the virtues of Tolstoy, Karpov, Kasparov and playing tourists at chess, while yet again pitching her screen treatment on the hidden but obvious connections between Harry Smith, Spiro Agnew, Andreas Papandreou, and Dave Mustaine.

Boy were we wrong. Since she left, she helped open and run the lauded Queen's Hideway where her pies were a highlight, learned how to butcher and render animals up to the size of a giant blue ox, cooked up a storm at the Roebling Tea Room, catered crazy events for people I'm not at liberty to reveal without personal serious consequences, built houses for Habitat for Humanity, somehow went even more metal and beautiful at the same time, and has now written a goddamned book.

We couldn't be more proud of Millicent and her book! She will be here at 3pm on Sunday, June 17th. And hey, if you've got nothing going on after, come on over to UP to see Dave Hill. He'll ALSO be signing his new book and we'll be there selling copies!
