Save Room for Kitchens of the Great Midwest


We’re excited to announce that J. Ryan Stradal, author of the tasty new novel, Kitchens of the Great Midwest, will be speaking and holding a foodie event at the next Writers’ Institute conference April 15-17. Stay tuned for registration, and don’t spoil your appetite.

Kitchens of the Great Midwest, about a young woman with a once-in-a-generation palate who becomes the iconic chef behind the country’s most coveted dinner reservation, is one of the summer’s most impressive debuts, and a New York Times Editor’s Pick.


“An impressive feat of narrative jiujitsu. . . that keeps readers turning the pages too fast to realize just how ingenious they are.”—The New York Times Book Review
