Julie Powell makes an appearance with the butcher of Marczyk Fine Foods

Julie Powell, the former blogger who cooked every recipe from Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking and then turned her hits and misses into a book of her own, Julie & Julia, was meant to take the big stage tonight in Denver, but for whatever reason (low ticket sales?), that lecture was canceled.

But the LoDo Tattered Cover, always a savior to the downtrodden, picked Ms. Powell right up and booked her for a 5:30 p.m. event tonight, an event that will allow Ms. Powell to pimp her newest novel, Cleaving: A Story of Marriage, Meat, and Obsession. And now comes word that the scribe will be stopping by Marczyk Fine Foods, 770 East 17th Avenue, today at 2:15 p.m. to spend time with the market's butcher, Jimmy Cross. If you've got one of her books, bring it, because while this isn't an autograph-signing session, we suspect Ms. Powell will happy to ink your copy.
