Vernon Area Public Library will join libraries across Illinois to host a virtual event with Midwest Made cookbook author Shauna Sever. Sever will discuss holiday baking with Chicago Tribune food critic and podcast host Louisa Chu. The event will be held on Zoom on Tuesday, December 13, at 7 p.m.
Shauna will share her love of food, baking, and some tips to make your holiday gatherings delicious. As a writer, Shauna’s work is best defined by her baking-centric cookbooks. Her fourth, Midwest Made: Big, Bold Baking from the Heartland, was named among the Best Baking Cookbooks of 2019 by The New York Times.
The event is free and open to all. Signup is required.
The event with Shauna Sever is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present (ILP), a statewide collaboration among public libraries offering premier events. Illinois Libraries Present (ILP) debuted in 2022 as a way to bring virtual events with bestselling authors and diverse and esteemed speakers to communities across the state and counts more than 200 Illinois libraries as members. Joining forces for such events allow libraries to bring speakers to their communities that might not be possible due to budget constraints or production capabilities. ILP is funded in part by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
