Big Congrats to Lara Hamilton, whose new store, The Book Larder: A Community Cookbook Store, will open in the Fremont neighborhood in Seattle in October. The culinary store was a dream of Kim Ricketts, whose Kim Ricketts Book Events hosted a popular Cooks & Books series (We interviewed her a few years back here.) Ricketts, beloved to many in the book community, passed away earlier this year.
Hamilton, who worked with Ricketts on the series, told Seattlest that The Book Larder brings “eaters, cooks and readers into one central gathering space and offer readings and culinary classes.” Seattle Met’s Nosh Pit posted a few photos of the store-in-progress here.
The Book Larder will announce its author schedule in the next few weeks. If the line-up for Cooks & Books is any indication, it will include some big names from the foodie world. Check for updates on its Facebook page.
