Lisa Lillien AKA Hungry Girl returns to St. Louis on Wednesday, April 20, 7:00 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center. It’s a FREE appearance, but you need to obtain an advance ticket.
Lisa will be in town for a Jewish Book Festival event and will be promoting her newest book Clean & Hungry. Important note: “Snacks will be served.”
Here is my interview with Lisa recorded in fall of 2012 for the Food Talk STL radio show, just ahead of an appearance at a Dierberg’s store.
In the interview, Lisa mentions throwing out a first pitch at a Cardinals game. (Hmmm. There’s a day game against the Cubs at Busch Stadium on her appearance date. Maybe she could enjoy a repeat performance?)
For (free) tickets to see Lisa on 4/20 at the J, you can call 314-442-3299 OR you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org OR you can stop by the box office at the JCC Arts and Education building. Location is 2 Millstone Campus Drive, St. Louis 63146.
