Random House takes over Basilica Hudson on July 11 to bring books to life Upstate. There will be complimentary beach reads, interactive workshops, wine tastings, and a variety of book-inspired sessions meant to energize and instruct. Keynote speakers Ruth Reichl, food critic and bestselling author, and Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project, will help craft the day's delights through lifestyle tips and treats. Reichl starts the day with a talk on life's unassuming pleasures and a preview of her upcoming fall cookbook, My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes That Changed My Life. Food trucks, coffee, tea, and boxed lunches (available for pre-order) will satisfy lunchtime cravings. Afternoon talks centered around spirituality, self and home improvement, and travel lead up to Rubin's talk on happiness, in which she will be joined by Darling magazine's editor-in-chief, Sarah Dubbledam. Off the Page will close with the Random House x Darling Dinner ($60) featuring an alfresco dining experience.
