The Traveling Feast – On the Road and at the Table with My Heroes

Rick Bass, one of America’s most iconic writers, shares an unforgettable adventure that nourishes and renews the spirit. At a turning point in his mid-fifties, Rick set out on a “journey of thanksgiving” with the goal to make a memorable meal for each of his mentors to express gratitude for the way they have shaped not only his writing but his life. From his bid to become Eudora Welty’s lawn boy to the time George Plimpton offered to punch him in the nose, lineage has always been important to Rick Bass.
