Join SFA Managing Editor Sara Camp Milam at City Grocery in Oxford, Mississippi on Wednesday, October 11 at 5 p.m. for a signing of The Southern Foodways Alliance Guide to Cocktails (UGA Press, 2017).
From the book:
The South’s relationship with drinking is complicated. Although religious and legal mandates discourage the sale and consumption of alcohol, the region has a robust drinking culture. As the home of NASCAR, a sport that arose from the high-speed antics of bootleggers, and Tennessee Williams, a man notorious for both his literary genius and his propensity to imbibe, the Bible Belt has a booze-soaked background. In the recipes and essays in The Southern Foodways Alliance Guide to Cocktails, Jerry Slater and Sara Camp Milam and their cocktail cabinet of contributors bridge the gaps between the culture, history, and practice of drinking in the South.
This event is hosted by Square Books in Oxford, MS.
