There is a refreshing movement across the nation of people stepping back and appreciating farm fresh produce and meats, and New Orleans is hardly an exception. Manhattan duo Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge should have no trouble fitting in when they come to sign copies of their memoir The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became Gentleman Farmers at Anthropologie this Saturday. Their book is about growing food, meeting the neighbors, and the daily experiences that the two have. Essentially, this is a book that will resonate with New Orleanians by way of Upstate New York.
Anthropologie has proven to be a unique retail store here in New Orleans. They aren’t one of those stores that just move in, open shop and forget about the New Orleans flair. Right from the get go, Anthropologie employed the help of artists and local designers to not only decorate the store, but sell their handcrafted items in-house.
Come out for an awesome opportunity for a special book signing at Anthropologie this Saturday, June 25th, from 11am-1pm, and keep up with the authors on their Planet Green documentary TV series.
