Lesbian reporter, author Kim Severson visits Outwrite today

‘Spoon Fed’ in Atlanta

Renowned author and now the Atlanta-based bureau chief for The New York Times, Kim Severson visits Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse to celebrate the paperback release of her memoir, “Spoon Fed: How Eight Cooks Saved My Life.”

Severson, who is openly gay, was the food writer and editor for the San Francisco Chronicle before becoming a food writer for the Times in 2004. She now lives in Decatur, Ga., with her partner and daughter.

“Spoon Fed” includes stories about famous and not-so-famous chefs and they have influenced her life, how she learned to deal with alcoholism as well as her coming out story.

Severson recently wrote a story for The New York Times dealing about Chick-fil-a and its Christian platform and how that clashes with LGBT people, some of whom are boycotting the restaurant. Read this interesting and detailed story here.

The book reading at Outwrite is at 7:30 p.m.
