For those of you who haven't read the Julie/Julia Project, Julie (Powell) decided to take on Julia (Child) and her inimitable Mastering the Art of French Cooking: 536 recipes in 365 days. It's awesome: she curses, she makes her husband wash the dishes, she hates (HATES) her day job. But it was all worth it, I guess, because she got a book deal.
She'll be at Third Place Books on Thursday. Even cooler for my Boston friends: she'll be at Chez Henri on October 14 (event sponsored by Porter Square Books)!
(Full disclosure: Hers was almost the first blog I ever read. The first was a guy from my most favorite college a cappella group, who you know, I was sort of stalking. But whatever. E-stalking, it's totally okay.)
