Wine writer Michele Hebert to speak Nov. 20 (free)

373052_195281050546489_1514919560_n.jpgI always like reading Michele Hebert's wine column in Midtown Monthly. It's informative, loaded with details and includes plenty of nuggets of information about particular wines and styles of wine. Plus, her recommendations are varied, well explained and much appreciated.

Hebert will be sharing some of her thoughts on wine on Sunday (Nov. 20) at 7 p.m., the latest in the Living Library series at Time Tested Books, 1124 21st St., Sacramento. I've enjoyed attending several of the Living Library events, even if the I can't get over the fact that there is no hyphen between "time" and "tested."

In the cozy surroundings of a well-stocked used and rare book store (that may or may not be punctuation-challenged), Hebert will be interviewed by Midtown Monthly's food and restaurant writer, Beck Grunewald, whose pieces in the magazine are also must-read missives for adventurous foodies on tight budgets.

The Living Library is a great thing and this event promises to be a lively-educational-entertaining-hyphen-free-free-for-all.
