Jim Harrison: A Tribute Dinner

Throughout his writing career, Jim Harrison expressed a recurring fondness for food, drink, and the state of Michigan. His colossal appetite produced a gourmand whose eccentric way of life offered unique flavors to both his writing and the food he consumed.

Please join Grange Kitchen & Bar, the Ann Arbor Distilling Co., and Literati Bookstore for a dinner celebrating Jim Harrison! Complete with a total of seven courses, the dinner will feature some of Harrison's most acclaimed and beloved dining experiences. This authentic combination of spirits, food, and wine will also be paired with a conversation led by local poet and Bear River Writers' Conference Coordinator, Monica Rico. In addition to Monica Rico, Charlie Brice, another local poet and former acquaintance of Harrison, will be reflecting on some of the correspondences and meals he shared with Jim. The pair will also speak about Harrison's total body of work, and the significant role food and drink played in his writing.

The dinner will be held on Wednesday, March 28th starting at 6:00pm. This just so happens to be the same day as the paperback release of Harrison's final book, "A Really Big Lunch." Tickets must be purchased in advance and a limited quantity is available. Please note that Jim Harrison was most effusive about animal proteins in his diet and, as such, a vegetarian option will not be available for this particular dinner.

Tickets are $80.00 ($95.00 includes tax and tip.)

Paperbacks of "A Really Big Lunch" as well as copies of Jim Harrison's other works will be available for sale during the dinner.
