Pie & Whiskey: Writers Under the Influence of Butter & Booze by Kate Lebo and Samuel Ligon

The table’s cleared, the dishwasher’s running, and all leftovers have been packed away. But don’t slow down yet, sports fans: It’s time for dessert. This year, no book tickles our post-dinner fancy like Pie & Whiskey: Writers Under the Influence of Booze and Butter. The anthology is inspired by Pie & Whiskey, an annual event in Spokane, Washington that invited writers to come and read works inspired by pie or whiskey (or both) while the audience enjoyed the event’s namesake vices. The resulting collection is a mix of shorter pieces written for the live event and brand-new longer pieces – plus accompanying recipes for whiskey cocktails and pies, of course. The San Francisco Book Review calls it “wonderful relatable storytelling, executed brilliantly.”
