Get a jump start on your holiday shopping at this Saturday’s market with a signed copy of Ellen Sweet’s Stirring it Up with Molly Ivins. You likely know Molly Ivins as an unabashed Civil Libertarian and a professional Texan, but did you know that she was also a very accomplished cook? Her longtime friend and often sous chef Ellen Sweet presents the private side to the public persona in her new book, which she’ll sign at the market from 9:00am to noon. Saturday afternoon Ellen will give a presentation and sign books at Octavia Books beginning at 3:00pm.
