Julie Powell, the author of Julie & Julia, canceled her big stage talk, but she's still coming to town: She's scheduled a last-minute event at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, December 10, at the LoDo Tattered Cover for her latest book.
Here's what Tattered has to say: Powell "thought cooking her way through Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking was the craziest thing she'd ever do, until she embarked on the voyage recounted in her new memoir, Cleaving: A Story of Marriage, Meat, and Obsession ($24.99 Little, Brown). Powell will discuss and sign Cleaving, the story of her odyssey into the world of professional butchers in which she learns a new art a bit of mastery over her unruly heart."
