Making (and Imagining) a Steam Brain

He is the editor of Man With a Pan: Culinary Adventures of Fathers Who Cook for their Families, an anthology with recipes featuring contributions from Mario Batali, Mark Bittman, Jim Harrison, Stephen King, and many others. Donohue also draws, paints, and cooks. His work can be found at www.johndonohue.com
All events are free and take place at The Connelly Theater immediately after matinee performances. The projected start time is 4:45pm and the events will last between 30 and 40 minutes.
