Linda Watanabe McFerrin is almost uniquely qualified to help writers get through these issues, because she has successfully written and published books through several channels—from major publishers to self-publishing. She is a poet, travel writer, a winner of the Katherine Anne Porter Prize for Fiction. She is the founder and leader of Left Coast Writers.

The foods we choose, and the places we dine say a lot about how we live. This group will read four quite different books - each with an entertaining and informative narrative - that focus on food and dining, and their impacts on society.
