Just received a notice about this October's Bookfest, and while I don't have cable (gasp!) and don't get to watch the food channel and all of it's celebrity chefs I immediately noticed the name of Alton Brown. Have to admit that I've never seen any of his shows, but have heard his name bandied about quite a bit on the General Topics board. So, for those of you who are interested, mark your calendars for October 19th and 20th (don't know which of those days he'll appear). For more information about the Bookfest, or about volunteering, go to the click the URL listed below.
