A local author will be visiting the East Bank Regional Library in Metairie (4747 W Napoleon Ave) to talk about her book, exploring a local nonfiction theme. Elizabeth Williams, founder and president of the Southern Food and Beverage Museum, will discuss her "Nana’s Creole Italian Table: Recipes and Stories from Sicilian New Orleans" at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14.

"Nana’s Creole Italian Table" tells the story of Sicilian immigrants and their communities through the lens of food, exploring the ways traditional Sicilian dishes such as pasta and olive salad became a part of ― and were in turn changed by ― the existing food culture in New Orleans.
