Eat.Drink.Read. A Culinary Event For Literacy

The San Diego Council on Literacy’s (SDCOL) fifth annual “Eat.Drink.Read. A Culinary Event for Literacy,” is anything but “by the book,” promising to deliver delicious bites and brews on Wednesday, May 14, 2014, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the McMillan Event Center at Liberty Station.

The event will raise needed funds to support SDCOL’s twenty-six literacy programs that provide free literacy assistance to more than 170,000 children, families and adults.

Guests will experience imaginative dishes created by more than a dozen of the city’s finest chefs, with each bite inspired by the chefs’ favorite books. New this year, beers from San Diego breweries will accompany the cuisine, allowing samplings from a wide variety of local craftsman.

The event will also feature a special presentation from KPBS’ Arts and Culture reporter, Angela Carone, who will announce the 2014 One Book, One San Diego selection.

With one in five adults in San Diego County possessing below basic literacy skills, SDCOL addresses this problem with what has become their largest fundraising event of the year. Guests will also get a chance to try tastings from a select chocolatier, bread maker, coffee roaster and wineries. And, they will enjoy the appearances of local pros at this year’s new Brews & News Trivia Pub.
