Join the Hargrett Library for the induction of Frances Mayes into the Georgia Writers Hall of Fame and enjoy a taste of Tuscany on Saturday, October 28, 2023 in room 285 of the Special Collections Libraries.
We'll begin the evening cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, featuring cannellini & sage crostini and pea & shallot crostini.
We'll then sit down for a plated dinner featuring a caprese salad followed by a dinner of chicken thighs with artichokes, sun dried tomatoes and chickpeas accompanied by roasted vegetables and roasted potatoes, or a vegetarian option of eggplant parmigiana, followed by dessert of gelato with lemon cake.
