Columbus, Ohio — Thurber House will present a special reading with Gourmet editor and award-winning food critic Ruth Reichl at 7:30 p.m. on Wed., April 5 at the Columbus Museum of Art, 480 E. Broad St.

Reichl is considered by critics and audiences alike to be one of the world’s preeminent writers about food. She will read from her best-selling memoir, Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise, which chronicles her six-year tenure as the food critic for The New York Times and offers a genuine, and often funny, commentary on the epicurean world. “Reading Ruth Reichl on food is almost as good as eating it,” said The Washington Post about the book. Reichl is the winner of three James Beard Awards and is the author of six previous books, including the memoirs Tender at the Bone and Comfort Me with Apples. She lives in New York.

A book signing will follow the reading. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased in advance and at the door. For more information, or to purchase tickets, call 614-464-1032 or go to
