Antigone Books on 4th Avenue is showcasing Rita Connelly’s Historic Restaurants of Tucson books at 7 – 8:30 p.m. on Friday, March 9.
The local food writer will be reading and going over her newest guidebook that burrows deep into the history of Tucson’s food culture.
The book begins in the 1920s and every chapter covers a specific decade of history, including eateries that range from smaller taquerias to some of the finer dining experiences.
If reading about all of this makes you hungry, don’t worry. Antigone Books will be serving green chili popcorn and prickly pear refreshments.
Historic Restaurants of Tucson will be available to keep for $21.99 during the event, or you can purchase it beforehand online at arcadiapublishing.com.
Rita Connelly also wrote the local hit Lost Restaurants of Tucson, which uncovers the history and stories of several well-known and forgotten spots in town.
Antigone Books is located at 411 N. 4th Ave. For more information, call (520) 792-3715 or visit antigonebooks.com.
