Writing a Cookbook: A Recipe for Success
If you’re a devout fan of cookbooks, have you ever wondered about the nuts and bolt behind the scenes in creating one? Sally Vargas, author of four cookbooks and weekly recipe columnist for the Boston Globe Wednesday Food Section will share some insights with you in this one-hour presentation. Sally will talk about how authors research, write, and edit their books. What are historically the most popular cookbooks? Have tastes changed in 2023, with so much online access to recipes? How does the book get published and marketed? Are cookbooks money makers, or they labors of love? Bring your questions and opinions and be prepared to discuss your favorite cookbooks and tell us why. This series of programs is made possible with grant funds from the Library Services & Technology Act distributed by the MBLC.
