Lockdown Library – Annie Gray

Mar 31, 2020

Today on #LockdownLunch, Annie Gray teaches us how to get creative at a time when we’re all forced to reckon with unusual ingredient substitutions…  


Lockdown Lunch will be a recurring segment of Lockdown Library – a new project bringing together our wonderful authors to offer up some fun, learning and relaxation during these strange times. We’ll be posting regular book readings, short talks and more Lockdown Lunches, so be sure to follow our Twitter and Instagram(both @pfdagents) to see when there’s something new in the #LockdownLibrary.
