Join Dragonfly Books and Java John’s Coffee House with New York Times Bestselling author J. Ryan Stradal and his new novel Kitchens of the Great Midwest. Stradal will share his stories and talk about his new book as we sample some iconic midwestern dishes at Java John’s Coffee House on Wednesday, October 7th at 7:00 pm.
A native of Hastings, Minnesota, J. Ryan Stradal is no stranger to midwestern life and cuisine. In Kitchens of the Great Midwest (Pamela Dorman Books, 2015) Stradal delves into the American heartland, sweeping the landscape of Lutheran church bake-offs, chili-pepper--eating contests, and the opening of deer season to capture the spirit of the Midwest and the rise of foodie culture.
If you find that you can't make it to the event but would still like to purchase one of Stradal’s books, just give Dragonfly Books a call at 563-382-4275. One of our staff will be glad to reserve a book and have it autographed for you.
