Watermelon and Red Birds, from acclaimed food writer and long-time friend of Greenlight Nicole A. Taylor, is the first cookbook to fully celebrate Juneteenth. As a master storyteller and cook, Taylor bridges the traditional African-American table and 21st-century flavors in stories and recipes, delivering an essential new cookbook that is both celebratory with the pleasures of good food, and heavy with the weight of history. Join Greenlight Bookstore in our Fulton St. location for a special Friday evening Brooklyn event -- complete with refreshments from the book -- to celebrate this new cookbook inspiring home cooks to salute one of the most important American holidays by offering moments of joy all year round. Nicole will be joined in conversation by the luminous Nikita Richardson, a senior staff editor for New York Times Food and Cooking.
