Lori Fredrich with Sanford D'Amato on Tuesday, November 24, Plus Mark Your Calendars for Buy Local Gift Fair and Kevin O'Keefe on "Railroad Visions."

Tuesday, November 24, 7 pm, at Boswell:
Lori Fredrich, author of Milwaukee Food: A History of Cream City Cuisine, in conversation with Sanford D'Amato.

There's just one author event this week, what with the holiday hubbub. Lori Fredridch will be discussing her new book from the American Palate series, Milwaukee Food: A History of Cream City Cuisine. As a dining writer for and with her blog Burp, Fredrich's has been exploring the food scene for years. And who better to discuss it with than Sandy D'Amato, James-Beard-Award-winning chef and former proprietor of Sanford.

Here's a link to her interview with Fox6. She's in the Studio A kitchen with Circa 1880's Thomas Hauck, who shows you how to take end-of-season tomatoes and squeeze out some tomato water to take your cooking to a higher level.

And here's Fredrich on Central Time, talking to Rob Ferrett and Veronica Rueckert on Wisconsin Public Radio.

Saturday, November 28, all day at Boswell:
Small Business Saturday and Indies First.

We're happy to be helping celebrate small business in Milwaukee. We've been such a busy little small business for the past few months that I decided to just sell books and not fill the day with programming.

Sunday, November 29, 9 am to 4 pm, at the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory (The Domes)

--$7 admission
--free parking
--many of your favorite local shops, with a particular focus on foodstuffs

Monday, November 30, 7 pm, at Boswell:
Kevin Keefe, contributor to Railroad Vision: Steam Era Images from the Trains Magazine Archives.

From the publisher: "Seen here are legendary locomotives from famous railroads such as New York Central, Norfolk & Western, and Union Pacific and the lost world of the steam short line as well as the intimate details of railroading: gallant locomotive engineers, gritty roundhouse workers, elegantly uniformed conductors. Each photograph is accompanied by an extended caption by Kevin P. Keefe, whose long association with Trains includes stints as editor-in-chief and publisher. Keefe also has written an introductory essay about the history of the magazine and its founder, A. C. Kalmbach, and legendary editor David P. Morgan, and their impact on the field of railroad photography."

Some of you eagle-eyed observers may have noticed we switched the date on this event. This was scheduled months ago for the following Thursday, but as we got closer to the event, not one but two train-related happenings popped up in the same slot. One of them was the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train, which coincidentally is scheduled to stop in Milwaukee exactly when our event was supposed to take place. There's actually another train event in Fox Point going on. Let them battle it out--we moved out of the way!

Kevin Keefe is former editor and publisher of Trains Magazine and is now a director of the Center for Railroad Photography and Art.
