Southern food writing, with the food

I write about books, not food. But I’d be remiss if I didn’t tell you that the Levine Museum of the New South’s “New South for the New Southerner” program on Monday, Nov. 8, involves both a book and Dan Huntley’s unforgettable barbecue.
Speakers include Huntley, co-author of “Extreme Barbecue,” Observer Food Editor Kathleen Purvis and Fred Sauceman, editor of “Cornbread Nation 5: The Best of Southern Food Writing.” Pieces by Purvis and Huntley are featured in that collection.
The event, 7 p.m. in the Lilly Family Gallery of Davidson College’s Chambers Building, is $8 for the public, $4 for members of the Levine Museum and Davidson Friends of the Arts. It includes a reception with the aforementioned barbecue.
RSVP: 704-333-1887 ext. 501 or rsvp@museumofthenewsouth.org.
