Join us on August 1st for a reading, conversation, and book signing with Iliana Regan to celebrate the release of her new memoir, Burn the Place. In her galvanizing memoir, Regan chronicles her journey from foraging on the family farm to running her very own Michelin-starred restaurant, Elizabeth. Burn the Place recounts Regan’s experience coming to terms with her gender and sexuality, fighting for sobriety, and pursuing a career in a male-dominated field.

Regan will be in conversation with Louisa Chu, a Chicago Tribune Food & Dining reporter and co-host of the Chewing podcast. Previously, she was a correspondent for Gourmet magazine and a fixer for Anthony Bourdain. 

We hope to see you there!
