Four delicious author events

The list of author readings we just edited for this Friday’s Weekend Plus section is super tasty — partly because it includes a bunch of food-related events. Cookbook authors, foodie celebrities and even some of our own in-house Seattle Times gastronomes will appear in bookstores and beyond this week.

Here’s a four-course menu:

New Yorker essayist Adam Gopnik , author of “The Table Comes First” and other books, leads a conversation titled “How We Eat Trumps What We Eat” at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 4, at Town Hall, 1119 Eighth Ave., Seattle; $5 (206-652-4255).

“The Splendid Table” star Lynne Rosetto Kasper and producer Sally Swift discuss and present bites from their book “How To Eat Weekends.” The $38.50 price of admission includes a copy of the book, 11 a.m. Nov. 6, Book Larder, 4252 Fremont Ave. N., Seattle (206-397-4271).

Local authors Mark Klebeck, Michael Klebeck and Jess Thompson discuss their book “Top Pot Hand-Forged Doughnuts: Secrets and Recipes for the Home Baker,” at 7 p.m. Nov. 10, University Book Store, 4326 University Way N.E., Seattle; free (206-634-3400).

Finally, the Seattle Times hosts its own author event on Nov. 10 at the downtown public library. Titled “The Scoop on Food,” it’s a discussion with food writer Nancy Leson, cookbook authors Kathy Casey, Greg Atkinson and Matthew Amster-Burton, moderated by PCC’s Karen Gaudette. 7 p.m. Nov. 10, Seattle Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., Seattle; free (206-386-4636).
