Domesticity: A Gastronomic Evening of Love with Bob Shacochis

Jan 12, 2015, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Pearl Stable

303 Pearl Pkwy

San Antonio, Texas

An evening about love, libido and lamb with Bob Shacochis, the National Book Award–winning author of Swimming in the Volcano, Easy in the Islands, The Next New World, and, most recently, the critically acclaimed novel The Woman Who Lost Her Soul. His book Domesticity is an irreverent exploration of the sweet and sour evolution of the enduring romance between author and lover. In this relationship, Shacochis stays at home and cooks, all the while reflecting on the ups and downs of a romantic partnership, the connection between heart and stomach, and how the crazed lust of youth evolves into inevitably settling down and simply making dinner. The evening stars tastings of recipes from the book along with Shacochis and his wife in conversation. Ticketed event; free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 pm with cash bar. Book signing follows event. Tickets available here.
