Meet Author Bridgette Lacy, author of SUNDAY DINNER

Friday, July 28, 2017  Time:  10:00–noon

In Sunday Dinner, a part of the Savor the South series by UNC Press,  Bridgette Lacy offers an ode to a meal that, notably in the Sabbath-minding South, is more than a meal. Sunday dinner, Lacy observes, is “a state of mind. It is about taking the time to be with the people who matter to you.” Describing her own childhood Sunday dinners, in which her beloved, culinary-minded grandfather played an indelible role, Lacy explores and celebrates the rhythms of Sunday food traditions.

Bridgette Lacy draws on life-defining moments to produce rich and honest prose and fiction. She’s written about her battle with a brain tumor and authored a popular series on unemployment. In between, she’s had adventures near and far, including a 1994 North Carolina Arts Council fellowship that sent her to the South of France to hone her fiction. In 1996, her short story, “Lilly’s Hunger,” was published in Streetlights: Illuminating Tales of the Urban Black Experience (Viking Penguin, 1996). Her work has appeared in Newsweek, The Washington Post and Southern Living.
