Meet Rachael Ray

Rachael Ray.

Media mogul Rachael Ray will appear Saturday, Dec. 8 at the Free Library of Philadelphia's Central Library on Logan Square with her husband, John Cusimano, to talk with me about her lastest book, My Year in Meals. (It's a compendium of 500 recipes - what Ray might whip up when the cameras aren't rolling.)

The Q&A event, which starts at 7 p.m., is free. But folks, this is Rachael Ray, it's a Saturday night, and the auditorium holds 400 people with overflow for hundreds more. 

Right. This will be a mob scene. I'll make it easy for two readers. Enter my little contest. I'll choose two people who will score reserved seats for themselves and one guest. Send in a favorite easy recipe with your entry.

>> Contest is here. Deadline is noon, Wednesday, Dec. 5.

Autograph hounds: Bracelets will be distributed to audience members who wish to purchase a new book and have it signed. Bracelets are first come first served. She will personalize only the new cookbook. Books other than My Year in Meals will receive a signature but no personalization.
