Wine & Cheese, Poetry & Prose at a Literary Arts Festival, May 7 in Livermore


This is a big all-day literary arts festival, but for Edible East Bay, the highlight will be the 2:30–4pm panel: Word of Mouth: Writing about Food and Wine with poet Gabrielle Myers (Too Many Seeds), winemaker/writer Steven Kent Mirassou (Lineage), journalist Deborah Grossman, and Sarah Cain, liqueur-maker of Muddle Me This, as moderator. David Everett, who runs the winemaking training program on campus joins the panel and conducts a 4–4:30pm food and wine tasting (for panel attendees only, must be 21+) with the college’s own Campus Hill Vineyard wines and cheese from Livermore’s new shop, The Cheese Parlor.

The free all-day festival features speakers, panels, workshops, poetry slam, music, food trucks, and more.
