Please join Parnassus Books in welcoming journalist and author Laura Zinn Fromm for a discussion and signing of her book, Sweet Survival - Tales of Cooking and Coping.Former award-winning journalist and self-described sugar addict, Fromm is both funny and frank in this moving account of trying to find comfort in a family fraught with mental illness. These essays are warm and generous, as are her recipes and cooking advice. You’ll find everything in here, from baking for a Nobel Prize winner to courting a kidnapper; mastering a mousse soufflé to roasting a chicken in milk. Fromm writes about her life with a tenderness and tenacity, and about food with a devotion and sensuality that will inspire even the most kitchen-phobic among us to bolt for our sauté pans. If food is love, Fromm depicts cooking as even lovelier.Laura Zinn Fromm holds an BA from Wellesley College and an MFA in fiction writing from Columbia University and teaches fiction and creative non-fiction through New York Writers Workshop. A former editor at Business Week magazine, she is a winner of the Clarion Award and the Newspaper Guild’s Page One Award for Labor Reporting.
